Report: Stevie Richards Suffers a Collapsed Lung

Bill Behrens


Recently, Stevie Richards suffered a collapsed lung that resulted when doctors were trying to diagnose a lung infection causing him to have a chest tube inserted for several days. He was back in the gym after two days and is scheduled to appear for NWA No Limits on 1-9-09.

Here’s an article that was posted when he was unable to appear on a recent Maryland Championship Wrestling show.

Stevie Richards health update

Stevie Richards did not appear at last nightâ<80><99>s 12-27-08 Maryland Championship Wrestling show because he suffered a collapsed lung early last week, Richards said in an interview with MCWâ<80><99>s Shawn Credle.

Richards, who was scheduled to wrestle The Bruiser at The New Green Room in Dundalk, said he had been suffering from a severe lung infection for months, but doctors were unable to diagnose the specific strain of the infection. Richards underwent a lung biopsy Monday, and his lung collapsed during the procedure.

Richards, who was hooked up to a chest tube â<80><9c>for a day or two,â<80> said he is feeling better, but his doctors recommended that he not wrestle last night.

Balls Mahoney was brought in to replace Richards against The Bruiser.

Iâ<80><99>ll have some notes on last nightâ<80><99>s MCW show after I get back from watching the Ravens defeat the Jacksonville Jaguars to clinch a playoff berth.
