Former WWE And ECW Star Tracy Smothers Battling Cancer

He confirmed the news on Facebook.

During the late 1990s, Tracy Smothers competed in Extreme Championship Wrestling as part of the Full Blooded Italians. Since 2001, Smothers has competed primarily on the indie circuit and still wrestles to this day, most recently competing at Heroes And Legends XIII, where he was defeated by Dru Skillz.

Smothers revealed on November 14th that he had been diagnosed with Lymphoma cancer. He wrote on Facebook: "To all concerned I was diagnosed Nov.14 w Lymphoma cancer which now am on my 3rd treatment 3 to go Of Chemo which is shrinking the rapid growing tumors.Doc told me yrs ago I have blockage in my artery so here we are an have lost 45percent of my heart use. Also he said I have lots of head,body trauma. Doc said I had a heart attack some time back an didnt know it. Have felt bad for awhile now but thought I was getting old,lol. This is not fatal as its between my Pancreas,Colon,neck. A big TY to all of u but I look at it as getting a tube up,overhaul,tires rotated,oil change,etc.all in one lol. Remember LIFE is a BATTLE an I'm in it to win it so dont hesitate in trying to be tough by putting off getting checked out in this day an age u never know??GOD BLESS EVERYBODY.."

We'd like to wish Smothers a full and speedy recovery.
