PRO WRESTLING legend Scott Steiner was rushed to hospital in a “life and death situation” after he was believed to have stopped breathing.
According to Sean Ross Sapp of Fightful, Scott Steiner collapsed in the locker room (backstage) during Impact tapings and had to be rushed to the hospital; and needed his heart to be shocked.
Reports suggest that his condition is serious right now. Steiner had wrestled earlier on in the night and collapsed afterward in the back.
