WWE fans may remember Jason Sensation for many reasons, and they were all impression-related. Now, the popular pro wrestling personality from the Attitude Era is having a rough patch.
Fans familiar with the WWF Attitude Era will recall Jason Sensation, the comedian and impressionist who made notable appearances for the promotion. Now, long after gaining recognition for his impressions, Sensation is making headlines again for a more challenging situation.
On Tuesday morning, wrestling manager Kimberely Ford disclosed that Sensation would undergo double bypass heart surgery on the same day, urging fans to keep him in their thoughts. Shortly after, Sensation himself posted from a hospital bed, revealing that his surgery would be rescheduled until after Christmas.
For those who grew up watching @JasonSensationX on Raw doing the best wrestling impressions. Please send some prayers and we’ll wishes his way. He is undergoing double bi-pass open heart surgery today.
Doctors decided to postpone the procedure after an emergency 10-hour surgery on another patient prevented Jason Sensation from undergoing the operation on the initially scheduled day.
Despite the delay, Jason Sensation maintained an overall positive outlook, expressing happiness about spending Christmas at home. Surviving two previous heart attacks and being hit by a car, according to his profile, Sensation extended gratitude to fans for their support and doctors for their care. He closed the second of two posts with the message “Peace, love, and the Hulk Hogan way, brother!” along with an impression of Hogan.
During his time in WWE, Sensation gained recognition for his appearances alongside D-Generation X, particularly when the group parodied the Nation of Domination and Corporation stables in early and late 1998. In the NOD parody, Sensation took on the role of Owen Hart, even donning a false nose to mock Hart, and later portrayed Shawn Michaels in the Corporation segment. After his WWE appearances, Sensation continued to wrestle on the independent scene, with his last match taking place in 2011.
