Indie wrestler Jimmy Rave has announced his retirement from wrestling in an unfortunate turn of events, after having his arm amputated due to an infection.
The former ROH star made the announcement in a tweet in which he revealed that his infection was found on Tuesday but by the time he got to the doctors, it was already too late:
“This past Tuesday my world came crashing down when Doctors found an infection in my left arm. I tried toughing it out but by the time I saw a doctor it was too late and they had to amputate my left arm above the elbow. Thus effectively ending my in-ring career.”
This is the hardest tweet I have ever had put out. pic.twitter.com/G9kr8oq7ra
