Former Tough Enough champion Matt Cappotelli has suffered yet another unfortunate setback and it could possibly put an end to his wrestling career. Doctors have recently diagnosed Matt Cappotelli with a brain tumor. He is scheduled to undergo tests in Ohio to further diagnose the tumor and to plan a treatment.
This couldn’t have come at a worse time as Cappotelli was on the brink of finally being called up to the main WWE roster this week to shoot some vignettes for a planned WWE debut. Cappotelli was close to being called up in the summer of 2003, but it was nixed at the last minute. He then suffered a concussion in a match against Hardcore Holly in April of 2004 at a Smackdown house show. Cappotelli also suffered a broken leg at an OVW TV taping this past August. He had been teaming up with Mike Mizanin in several dark matches and WWE house shows during that time.
