Richard Blood (Ricky Steamboat, 57) was fighting for his life last night in Tampa after suffering a brain aneurysm, according to Globe sources.
He is currently listed in intensive care under 24-hour observation. An angiogram revealed bleeding in his brain – which can lead to a stroke.
Details are sketchy right now but we understand Steamboat had been experiencing severe head pains following the spot on Monday's Raw when Justin Gabriel delivered his 450 splash.
WWE.com reported earlier this afternoon that Steamboat was hospitalized late Wednesday night. They posted no details other than claiming, "According to medical officials, his condition is most likely not related to his performance on Monday night, and Ricky’s medical prognosis is good to excellent."
Story is developing.
