Recommended Posts




Matt Cappotelli, the winner of WWE's reality show "Tough Enough," died Friday after fighting two battles with brain cancer, WDRB reports. He was 38.

Cappotelli was first diagnosed with a brain tumor in 2005, beating it two years later. However, in 2017, doctors diagnosed him with a Grade 4 glioblastoma tumor and were subsequently unable to fully remove it, deeming it terminal, WDRB reports.

Cappotelli, who is survived by his wife, became a trainer at Ohio Valley Wrestling after his retirement.

TheWrap has reached out to the WWE for comment on Cappotelli's death.

Fellow wrestlers and wrestling fans mourned his passing on social media.
