Report On Desmond Wolfe’s Medical Issue

Randy Ricci, a former production manager for TNA Wrestling, claimed in a blog post on Friday that he heard the reason Desmond Wolfe has not been wrestling in recent months is because he has Hepatitis C—a viral disease that leads to inflammation of the liver. He added that he hopes it’s not true.

Ricci says he heard the former ROH World Champion will be offered an office job.

Wolfe last wrestled for the organization in August. He and Magnus were scheduled to receive a shot at the TNA World Tag Team Championship against The Motor City Machine Guns at No Surrender, but were pulled from the event at the last minute, with TNA citing a “personal issue” as the reason. It was later reported that Wolfe was pulled from the event due to an undisclosed medical situation that would sideline him indefinitely.

Hulk Hogan is the only TNA Wrestling employee to publicly address Wolfe’s status with the organization. When asked recently on Twitter about Wolfe returning to television, Hogan responded, “Desmond’s situation is beyond TNA’s control, the ball is completely in his court.”

    @ Bill it said that he reported about the suit in a sense of reporting to the media. imo

    Um, Jason, a few questions…

    So why doesn’t TNA have a solid drug testing policy? Why did they hire Jeff Hardy after he’d been busted for drugs and continue using him. Why did they send him out to the ring when he was out of it. Why are they building plans to bring him back whether he beats his drug problems or not? Why did they sue Konnan for money they only lent him so that he could pay medical bills for injuries he incured working for them? Why do they do these things, if they actually care about a wrestlers well being?

    I only ask because your comment is rather uninformed and I hoped you could provide a logical answer?

    I imagine you will call me a TNA basher, a WWE mark (though I am not defending them with my questions) and side step the questions all together. If you have the character to answer them, that is.

    LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOL @ the comment about TNA caring about their wrestlers’ health. Just ask Daffney how much they care.

  • M.C.

    @bill, oh my god! Desmond Wolfe was the one who did it! that chick had the STD & gave it to wolfe! How else would she know??? just sayin!

  • Bill

    Hey, isn’t this Randy person the one in the sexual harrasment lawsuit?

  • U ain’t awesome

    So are they gonna have another stupid tribute 2 desmond wolfe like they did edge? Is x-pac gonna make a stupid video discussing hep c, like gregory helms did?

  • nick

    i knew he had Hep C a few months ago when they pulled him from the event cause i read something about it online WE needs to do some better reporting

  • Jason

    @ Venom

    The reason that TNA cares about their wrestlers’ health is because TNA isn’t ran by Vinnie Mac.

  • venom

    Yea, that is true. I am surprised TNA actually took a second to think about a wrestler’s health.

  • Aaron

    Looks like Desmond should have gotten rid of Chelsea a little sooner. Her dirty jizzcatching fuckhole gave him a Pam Anderson special.

  • its not so much he can’t wrestle anymore so much as he can’t blade problem is TNA insist on using blood a lot

  • venom

    Hogan is probably going to tell Wolfe to be a man and never stop wrestling.
