Matt Cappotelli passed away early Friday morning.
The winner of Tough Enough season three and former WWE wrestler Matt Cappotelli has passed away after a long battle against cancer. In 2007, he had a brain tumor removed but last year he had a second surgery as the tumor returned. The entire tumor could not be removed and then in May his wife updated the public that his condition had worsened.
On Friday morning, Cappotelli passed away at the age of 38.
Cappotelli's wife posted the following to the Team Capp Facebook group.
Hey Team Capp...I’ve been struggling with what to say and how to say this, and I’ll probably end up rambling, but here goes. Today my love-my strong, sweet, beautiful love-took his last breath at 3:30 a.m. and went Home to be with Jesus...exactly one year after his brain surgery. You think you can be prepared for this when you know it’s coming, but you just can’t. The only person who’s comfort I want right now is the one who can’t give it to me. I miss him so much. I know where he is now is so much better, but it doesn’t change how much I miss him.
Fightful Wrestling would like to extend condolences to the family and friends of Matt Cappotelli.
