We are receiving more information on the death of Chris Candido yesterday. Numerous people have told us he was eating dinner and suddenly collapsed.
Canddio had surgery on Monday evening after suffering a broken ankle Sunday at TNA’s Lockdown PPV. TNA was paying for the surgery, where they inserted pins and needles inside his leg. Candido was released shortly after and arrived at the TNA Impact! tapings the next day to work.
Candido (in a wheelchair) managed The Naturals to a tag tam title victory on today’s Impact!. Chris had also been very nervous on Sunday night but was happy to know that indy promoters were still planning to use him on their shows despite the injury.
We know he had been experiencing problems with vomiting since the surgery. There were problems getting pain medication as well because of years of drug abuse and the scars on his arms to show for it. Once doctors got clearance that he had cleaned up his life, he was given medication.
There is talk right now that his death may either be the result of a staph infection or a blood clot.
On behalf of everyone at this website, we want to send our condolences to the family and friends of Chris Candido. A truly great man who had cleaned up his life and was on a path to success. You will be missed.
