Perry Saturn suffering from "traumatic" brain injury

Published 2 Comments

If you ask a WWE fan what their favourite era was, the majority of them would say the Attitude Era.

The controversial TV segments, the calibre of superstars, and the overall feel around the company was completely different back then, and it's commonly deemed the most successful period for World Wrestling Entertainment, known back then as World Wrestling Federation.

One of the superstars of the Attitude Era was Perry Saturn, and since retiring from wrestling, he's gone relatively under the radar, rarely appearing in the public eye.

However, the 49-year-old was at a public event this weekend as he made an appearance at Tommy Dreamer's House of Hardcore event in the former ECW Arena.

After being spotted by decorated professional wrestling journalist Bill Apter, Saturn was interviewed and was asked about what he's been up to over the past few years.

Sadly for the former WWE superstar, he revealed that he's been suffering from a traumatic brain injury.

Saturn left WWE back in 2002 after being released by the company, ending his long-term association with them. However, this didn't see him retire from professional wrestling, as he continued to compete for a further two years, before finally retiring in 2004.

During his interview with Apter, Saturn revealed how he was dealing with a traumatic brain injury which is currently limiting his abilities.

Saturn admitted he struggles with the injury, but his faith and his family are seeing him through it as best as possible.

You can watch the interview with Saturn in the video below.

Saturn won three championships during his time with WWE/WWF, winning the European Championship once and the Hardcore Championship twice.
