Matt Cappotelli Gives Update After Surgery
Sunday, July 2, 2017
Former Tough Enough season 3 winner Matt Cappotelli recently gave fans an update after having brain surgery. He recently announced that the brain tumor he had removed a decade ago that ended his career had returned bigger and more aggressive than before. He posted this on his Facebook.
To give everyone the best update I can, here we go. The doctors said my surgery was very successful and they were able to accomplish exactly what they set out to do. From start to finish the surgery took between 9 and 10 hours. I can’t tell you how much respect and love I have for the staff at Norton Brownsboro Hospital, you are all truly amazing people. As I stated before, there is still an inoperable portion of tumor in my brain stem that will have to be dealt with at a later time. The game plan for now is for me to get as healthy and rested as possible and wait on the pathology results to come back. Once we have the pathology report in a few weeks, we will know what type of tumor we’re dealing with and how to attack the portion in my brain stem with the most effective treatment protocol. The fight will continue, this is just the next step . Thanks for all of your prayers, messages, and kind words, I LOVE YOU AL

Matt was set for the main roster push a number of times after winning the reality show but was hampered by multiple injuries before the tumor was discovered and his career as a wrestler came to an end.
We wish Cappotelli all the best in his newest fight.
