Sean Waltman almost became an amputee as a result of neglect.
The WWE Hall of Fame legend formerly known as X-Pac, Syxx and the 1-2-3 Kid recently appeared as a guest on Insight with Chris Van Vliet for an in-depth interview covering all things pro wrestling.
During his appearance on the popular pro wrestling program, the former nWo and D-X member recalled nearly losing his arm as a result of not properly taking care of a significant injury he had sustained.
Featured below is an excerpt from the interview where the pro wrestling legend touches on this particular topic.
“I was in a match. You know Nick Aldis. Nick and I were in a tag match. I don’t want to get into the specifics of how it happened, but it had to do with a clothesline. I hit him, and I tore my pec completely, and my bicep. My pec is gone. I only have half a pec on this side. My bicep is torn. It’s guts into a ball. That was brutal. That was the most f*cking pain I’ve ever had in my life. I drove four hours home because I was living in Philly at the time. My arm, everything swelled up, and they almost had to cut my arm off. I had this thing called compartment syndrome. Everything started filling up with blood. I should have gone to the hospital instead of driving home for four hours.”
