Former WCW wrestler Brad Cain, better known by his ring name Lodi, recently survived a life-threatening health scare.

Lodi, who was a prominent member of the popular stable The Flock during his time in WCW, suffered a heart attack following a wrestling match against Lucky Ali from Deadlock Pro.

According to a report by Queen City News, Lodi admitted that he initially ignored the signs that something was wrong. However, realizing the severity of the situation, he drove himself to a nearby hospital despite feeling unwell. During the 52-minute drive, Lodi’s mind was filled with concerns about causing harm to others on the road, recalling the tragic death of wrestling legend Macho Man Randy Savage.

Upon reaching the hospital, Lodi received a startling diagnosis. Doctors discovered that two of his arteries were completely blocked, and another, commonly referred to as the Widow Maker, was 90% blocked. As a result, he underwent a five-hour quintuple bypass surgery, which proved to be life-saving.


Speaking about the ordeal, Lodi expressed his gratitude crediting god for being at his side.

“I’m like ‘God, just don’t let me hurt anyone because we all know how Macho Man Randy Savage died. I was doubled over and driving one hand and trying to keep my eyes on the road.” Upon arriving at the hospital, Lodi learned that two of his arteries were 100% blocked and a third, commonly known as the Widow Maker, was 90% blocked. As such, he had no choice but to undergo a five-hour quintuple bypass surgery, which ultimately saved his life. Despite the scare, the 52-year-old is determined to continue on with his wrestling career. “I know God was with me through all of this,” Lodi said. “I’m going to rehab and work on getting me better.”

Despite the scare and the need for a lengthy recovery process, the 52-year-old wrestler remains determined to continue pursuing his passion for wrestling.

While Lodi’s health scare was undoubtedly a frightening experience, it has also served as a reminder of the importance of self-care and prompt action when it comes to personal well-being.
