He’s doing ok. Despite how it might seem on television, wrestlers are people just like anyone else.

The Attitude Era is one of the most discussed periods in the history of professional wrestling. While it may or may not be your favorite period, there were some incredible moments and wrestlers that people will remember from that era for a long time to come. Unfortunately, one of the most high profile names from the time has been hit with a pretty hard health scare.
Brian Armstrong, better known as the Road Dogg, has most likely suffered a heart attack, as confirmed by his wife in a series of Facebook posts. The issue took place on Thursday night when Armstrong returned from Orlando, Florida. Armstrong’s kidneys are clear but he has a heart catheterization scheduled for Monday. Armstrong currently works for WWE as part of the production team for NXT.

There is always a chance that something can be fixed with medicine or surgery and what matters most is that he is as ok as possible.
