Scott Steiner Rushed To The ER After Collapsing At Impact Wrestling
Some scary news coming out of yesterday’s Impact Wrestling taping. Scott Steiner was taken to the hospital after collapsing backstage. His condition was originally reported as serious, but he is apparently doing better. There is no word on what exactly caused Steiner’s medical scare.
As of now, there is no official statement from Impact Wrestling as a company. But, Impact Executive Vice President Scott D’Amore and Tommy Dreamer took to Twitter with an update.
For all concerned parties @ScottSteiner is OK.
His family is grateful for everybody’s concern and support.

There are unconfirmed reports that Steiner stopped breathing and needed his heart to be shocked. Again, this has not been confirmed and is purely a rumor at the moment.
The 57 year old was at the taping in Atlanta, Georgia, for the upcoming TNA throwback episode later in the month. It does not sound like he wrestled at the show. Instead, he was cutting promos and noting appeared wrong before he collapsed.
From everyone at Wrestle Newz, we wish Steiner a safe and speedy recovery. Stay tuned for more information on this developing story.

I was at Wrestlecon last year. Several rooms filled with legends of this business, The Horseman, Bret Hart, among others. I only had the money to meet one person and out of all those people I chose to meet Scott Steiner. Hearing that he’s in a bad way hurts me. PULL THROUGH SCOTT pic.twitter.com/VEQ9xEU9XI
