Lars Sullivan was reportedly backstage on last week’s RAW but he did not compete in a match, as he was reportedly suffering from an anxiety attack. However, it seems that it was not as serious as initially thought.
Bryan Alvarez explained on Wrestling Observer online that there is a difference between an anxiety attack and panic attack.
“I wanna clarify one thing here. So the term ‘anxiety attack.’ I think he had a panic attack and I’m not sure, I don’t know exactly what’s going on here. I know the term anxiety attack was used. I also heard the term panic attack.”
“You know anybody can have a panic attack whether or not you have anxiety issues, does that make sense? So I don’t know if this is a mental health issue. The impression I got over the past couple of days is that this is not a mental health issue he just kinda panicked.”
WWE was very understanding of Lars Sullivan’s situation and allowed him to go home early. While he was unable to compete on RAW and Smackdown last week, it is the belief that he will be making his debut soon enough.
“The impression I’ve gotten is that they’re not rewriting everything and they’re done with Lars Sullivan and Lars Sullivan’s not gonna… I mean it’s Lars Sullivan everybody. It’s Vince McMahon’s WWE. He will get more chances than 95% of guys. So my guess is that at the end of the day he’s gonna debut and everything’s gonna be alright.”
It is uncertain what exactly will happen to Lars Sullivan. We will keep you updated on this matter.
