After failing to answer the 3rdRound horn at “Strikeforce: Houston” on Saturday night, former WWE and TNA wrestling superstar Bobby Lashley left the Toyota Center on a stretcher in an ambulance.
The 34-year-old was a significant 6-to-1 favorite to start his mixed martial arts career with a perfect 6-0 mark, unfortunately Chad Griggs opted to flip the script and mastermind one of the biggest upsets of 2010 with his impressive TKO victory.
Lashley was awake and coherent, but thoroughly disappointed when he was carted off backstage. However, Kristal Marshall Tweeted her boyfriend’s status was far from stable.
“Please pray for bobby and our family we just got some very very scary news,” Marshall posted late Saturday night. “Bobby got admitted he can’t come home…it is very scary they r running lots of tests im Freaking out they r keeping me in the dark.”
Marshall is a former WWE Diva and the pair began dating during his stint with the world’s premier professional wrestling organization. The couple had a son, named Myles in July 2008.
