MLW Star Richard Holliday Being Treated For Hodgkin’s Lymphoma

Richard Holliday is being treated for Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

The Major League Wrestling star shared the news in an interview with Justin Barrasso of Sports Illustrated. He hasn’t wrestled since June, as he has been focused on his treatment ever since. In the interview, he noted that the journey has been a “whirlwind”. He recalled how he didn’t feel well at the time of his last match, and he knew something was wrong.

“When I wrestled Hammer in June, I was taking Dayquil to try to get through every day,” Holliday said. “I kept pushing and pushing, but I just felt off. At that point, I had just got home from California. The whole time I was there, I was freezing. I was pale white when I left after a month.” I was taking iron pills to try to counter that, but my levels kept dropping,” Holliday says. “They checked if I had internal bleeding, which I didn’t, and then they ran a litany of tests and a scan of my body for a possible case of lymphoma in September. Those tests confirmed it was Hodgkin’s lymphoma.”

Holliday then recalled the day he learned that he had cancer, and he emphasized that he shifted his mindset toward being more positive in this fight.

WrestleZone sends its best wishes to Holliday in his fight against cancer.
