WWE.com has posted the following update on former OVW and Tough Enough Champion Matt Cappotelli:

One week after having a brain tumor removed, Matt Cappotelli is recovering well.

“The tumor was completely removed,” said Dr. Ferdinand Rios. “The operation was a success because he hasn’t lost any vision at all.”

Doctors will know more soon, as the pathology report is due within two weeks.

“He’s awake, talking, eating, and very conscious of where he’s at, so he’s doing very well,” Dr. Rios said.

WWE.com promises updates to Matt’s health as details are available, and of course we wish him a full recovery.
