Bobby Eaton Suffers Heart Attack
Wrestling legend Bobby Eaton of the Midnight Express suffered a heart attack over the weekend. An official statement was made on his Facebook:
Obviously the last 24 hours have been a little chaotic. I wanted to release this statement on behalf of Bobby in regard to his current condition.
Yesterday, Bobby and I were booked for Pro Wrestling Phoenix (PWP). The promotion ran its regular monthly show at the Council Bluffs, Iowa National Guard Armory. This is just minutes from Omaha, Nebraska.
We arrived to the venue around 2:15 p.m. for a scheduled 3 p.m. training seminar with some of the PWP crew and aspiring future wrestlers who are still in their training phases. A very respectable group of individuals attended and had a 2-hour time frame to learn a few things from Bobby.
On our 6-hour trip there, Bobby had felt fatigued and most signs indicated that his sugar was low. He has had some battles with diabetes over the last decade.
After getting to the venue and checking his symptoms, I went to a local convenience store and got some candies that help get sugar rates back up as they bottom out. About 30 to 45 minutes later, he seemed to be slightly better.
Around 6:30 p.m., we went to the gimmick table to sell pictures and other merchandise as the doors opened. Bobby seemed to be getting a little worse and started to shake and sweat more. He then started having seizure-like jolts. After a second one, we decided he needed to get to the hospital. One of the guys who was participating in the seminar and several of the PWP staff jumped right into action, getting a local ambulance service en route within minutes. Thankfully, the venue we were at was only two miles from area hospitals.
Bobby’s heart rate and sugar levels were both elevated. Doctors believe he did have a heart attack. His defibulator and pacemaker were key in keeping him from going into full cardiac arrest we do believe.
He is currently still in the hospital as the staff wants to make sure as is well.
As the true pro he is, Bobby feels bad for the fans who didn’t get to interact with him as planned at the PWP event and for the entire PWP crew.
We want to certainly thank PWP for the hospitality and promoter Chris Metry was a true class act. If you live in that area, give PWP a chance. They had a lot of great young talent bundled with area veterans.
I will do my best to keep everyone up to speed on Bobby’s condition throughout the week. Thoughts and prayers are indeed appreciated at this time.
