Buff Bagwell seriously injured in wreck

Pro wrestler Marcus "Buff" Bagwell remained in intensive care Tuesday night after being seriously injured in a Cherokee County wreck, a wrestling spokesman told the AJC.

Bagwell flipped his Jeep several times on Towne Lake Parkway late Monday, leaving him with broken bones in his neck and face and a broken jaw, Ron Gossett, president of Universal Championship Wrestling, said Tuesday night.

Bagwell, 42, was transported to WellStar Kennestone Hospital, where he remains sedated due to the extent of his injuries, Gossett said.

"Hopefully, he'll make a full recovery," Gossett said.

Bagwell, a Cobb County native, attended Sprayberry High School before his wrestling career began. He is best known for his tenure with World Championship Wrestling from 1991 until 2001, when he was five-time World Tag Team champion. Bagwell suffered a broken neck wrestling in 1998, but was later able to return to the ring.

I heard that he even today has the same awesome physique he had back in the day. Shame he didn't last in WWE.

Re: Buff Bagwell seriously injured in wreck

I always wondered how he would of done in WWE. It's a shame his tenure was so short.
his attitude was awful from what ive read, had his mum phone in sick for him saying he couldnt work a friday house show but he'd be ok for raw, had alot ofr potential at one stage but like many WCW acts got booked into oblivion and wiped out his popularity.

A broken neck? Shit didn't he already break his neck (or severly injure it) with that top-rope bulldog on Rick Steiner in WCW?

I hope he has a speedy recovery, I always love him in WCW, he had an awesome entrance music lol.
