Scott Steiner collapsed backstage at an Impact Wrestling event in Atlanta on Friday night. He was rushed to the hospital and that quick action might have saved his life.
Big Papa Pump needed heart surgery the next day after he was brought to a stable condition. Steiner’s wife Christa Rechsteiner commented on this event where she thanked everyone for taking such great care of her husband.
First of all I went to thank everyone @IMPACTWRESTLING for taking such great care of my husband @ScottDAmore @THETOMMYDREAMER @johnnyswinger2 @JoeyRyanOnline @IMPACTWRESTLING & Cobb County EMTs. We appreciate all the well wishes, thoughts & prayers. He will make a recovery.
Impact Wrestling is a family like many others in the pro wrestling business. Scott Steiner means a lot to them just as he does for every other pro wrestling fan. Thankfully, Impact Wrestling was prepared for anything so when an emergency situation came up they knew what to do.
