That’s terrible. Wrestlers have all kinds problems to deal with on a day to day basis and you never know how things are going to go with their careers. At the same time, there are other issues that can come up outside of the ring which can be far more devastating. Now a young star has revealed a horrible situation, but things might already be taking a step in the right direction.

During an interview with Sports Illustrated, major League Wrestling’s Richard Holliday revealed that he is undergoing treatment for Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Holliday, 30 years old, said that he began experiencing various health issues over the summer and was diagnosed in September. He promised to fight the disease and to return to the ring when he is able. Holliday last wrestled on June 23 and is a former MLW Tag Team Champion.

Holliday has all of the tools. Check out what he can do in the ring:

Opinion: That is horrible on a lot of levels but the fact that the disease seems to have been caught fairly early and is already being treated is a very good thing. It’s awful to hear anyone having a disease like this and it will be great to see Holliday back in the ring where he belongs instead of dealing with something so bad. Best of luck to him of course, and get better soon.

What do you think of Holliday? What should he do when he gets back in the ring? Let us know in the comments below.
