According to the always reliable Mike Johnson from PW Insider, WWE German announcer Cartsen Schaefer, suffered a “mild” heart attack on Saturday June 16th, which forced him to miss the Money in the Bank PPV.
Schaefer took to his Facebook to send a message.
I saw that some of you were wondering why I didn’t comment today. Well, that night I had so strong back pain that I went to the hospital. That’s where they found my big surprise that I had a slight heart attack in the last 24 hours. I didn’t notice anything. Now everything is settled, and I’m still in hospital until Tuesday or Wednesday. I don’t belong to those who hang on to that big bell. But since you were so asked, I wanted to tell you. Sorry I couldn’t comment. Thanks to all my loved ones from WWE who took care of me. Greetings to you all. Great to work for WWE. And an equally loving greeting to you because you are you and I may know you too…
Johnson also reports that if tests go well, he should be released by tomorrow.
We wish you well Mr. Schaefer.
