Former WWE developmental star and Tough Enough winner Matt Cappotelli announced the following via his Facebook page this evening:

"Diagnosis is in.

I have a grade IV GlioBlastoma Multiforme (GBM).
This is not the news I was looking forward to hearing or sharing, but it will in no way deter me from continuing my fight. Spinal tap this Friday will determine if the cancer cells have spread to my spinal fluid. Monday is a follow up with my team of doctors to determine the treatment steps needed to beat this. Thanx to everyone on #TEAMCAPP"

Cappotelli announced in late June that the brain cancer that ended his in-ring career had returned after ten years.

Everyone at expresses our best wishes to Matt, his family and friends.
