Former pro wrestling Superstar and Tough Enough winner Matt Cappotelli needs your help. Matt was a young pro wrestler with a ton of potential and a long road of success ahead of him. There were plans to bring him to the WWE main roster from OVW, but he was diagnosed with a grade 2/3 astrocytoma in December 2005.
Fans were happy to hear the cancer was removed in 2007, but things have unfortunately changed for the worse. Now Matt is currently dealing with the return of the awful brain cancer that put a stop to his initial run with WWE.
Please stop by his GoFundMe page and donate whatever you can to the cause. Anything you can help with would be very much appreciated and would mean a lot to Matt and his family.
The GoFundMe’s account features the following summary:
“Matt Cappotelli is a 37 year old former WWE wrestler and Tough Enough 3 Champion, who is battling brain cancer for the second time in his young life. Back in 2006 he was diagnosed with a grade 2 glioma which ended his wrestling career. Most of the tumor was successfully removed in 2007. He was then treated with radiation and two years of chemotherapy.
Unfortunately, just last month, after nearly 10 years of being in remission, his brain tumor returned in a much more aggressive form. In June of 2017 it was discovered that Matt’s brain tumor has returned as a grade IV GlioBlastoma Multiforme (GBM), which is the most aggressive and deadliest form of brain cancer.
He and his family are currently seeking out treatment options to help conquer the biggest battle of his life. Their strong faith in God has not wavered and has inspired thousands of people!”
