MATT CAPPOTELLI UPDATE AND MORE

By Paul Jordan on 2017-08-12 10:30:00

WWE.com has an interview with Tough Enough III Champion Matt Cappotelli in which he discusses his latest fight with brain cancer. He discusses the diagnosis, his reaction, treatment and training talent in Ohio Valley Wrestling. When Matt was asked what message he hopes his cancer battle can give to people he said this:

"Just that you have to fight for what you want. Life is the most precious gift we’re given. If I can inspire others to not give up on the life they’ve been blessed to have, that’s what I’m trying to spread – hope. There’s others going through what I’m going through or worse. They need support and inspiration like I do.  

It’s a community; we all feed off one another. It’s not time to crawl up in a hole and feel bad for myself and get down. It’s time for me to stand up and share my struggles publicly so that others can draw strength and hope from me. That way, I’m giving back and turning what I’ve been given in life into a positive and helping someone along the way. I think we need to stand together. If I can inspire someone to share their struggles – it’s not easy, at least for me, to be vulnerable. You want to hold it in and put on the tough guy persona, that nothing’s getting to you, but that’s a lie. I don’t think anyone draws inspiration from that. They do from seeing you struggle, be open and relatable. I think the more you’re open and relatable, there’s more strength others can draw from that."
