Former WCW Star In Critical Condition After Car Crash
by Steven Gepp on April 26, 2012

Several news sites are reporting that former WCW wrestler Marcus “Buff” Bagwell, 42, has been involved in a car accident which has left him severely injured.

The accident occurred on Monday, according to the Twitter account of UCW, the Georgia-based independent promotion for which Bagwell worked. Early indications are that Bagwell may have had a seizure whilst driving, which led to him crashing his jeep. He was subsequently taken to the ICU unit of  WellStar Kennestone Hospital, where he remains in critical condition.

UCW report that Bagwell has broken his neck in two places, and is also suffering injuries to the nose, cheek bone and jaw. Bagwell has shown signs of improvement since Monday, but remains “heavily medicated, on a breathing & feeding tube.”

This is not the first time that Bagwell has suffered a neck injury. In 1998 Bagwell suffered damage to several vertebrae and developed spinal shock syndrome following a botched diving bulldog at the hands of Rick Steiner on the April 22 edition of WCW Thunder.

Our thoughts are with the Bagwell family at this difficult time.

My 2 cents: As much as people rag on Bagwell, and as much as he phoned it in at certain points of his career, he was a company man for WCW who did as he was asked in whatever angle he was placed in (Judy Bagwell on a forklift match anyone?). Let’s hope for a good, strong recovery for Marcus Alexander Bagwell.
