According to a report by The Wrestling Observer, John “Sir Oliver Humperdink” Sutton was told that surgery to remove his cancer is no longer an option due to deteriorating health while battling pneumonia. Sutton has now made the decision to enter hospice care instead of undergo chemotherapy.
When responding to fan questions on his official Facebook page, TNA Wrestling’s Eric Bischoff discussed the current number of pro wrestling Pay Per View events. “Definitely need to drop the number of PPV’s. The business isn’t hot enough to sustain the current number and doing them hurts the long term viability of the category. Worked in the 90s. Not now. Just my personal opinion. It will take balls and vision to change the model.”
