FORMER WCW Champ Buff Bagwell Makes MAJOR Progress After Horrific Car Crash!! {UPDATE}

Buff Bagwell is finally breathing and eating on his own … after nearly dying in a horrific car crash Monday … this according to the wrestler’s wife.

TMZ spoke with Judy Bagwell … who tells us the former WCW superstar had been hooked up to a breathing tube while emergency room doctors were scrambling to treat major injuries to his face and spine.

But now, Judy says, “The breathing tube was removed on Wednesday … he is talking … he’s eating solid foods.”

“[Doctors] were really shocked that he was communicating so soon … he’s a fighter.”

As we previously reported, Buff flipped his Jeep after suffering a seizure behind the wheel.

Judy says Buff’s already been contacted by a few of his old WCW buddies … including Sting, Scott and Rick Steiner and “Diamond” Dallas Page.

“It’s really helped that he’s been contacted by friends … he’s really feeling the love.”

That’s GREAT news!!! Best of wishes to both Buff and Mrs. Bagwell.

FORMER WCW Multi-Time Champ “Buff Bagwell” Suffers Broken Neck In Car Accident Which May Have Been Caused By Medication!!!

Buff Bagwell’s accident, which happened on Monday, may have been caused by a sudden change in his medication. This according to his wife. Buff Bagwell’s near fatal accident caused severe injuries to the former WCW multi time champion. In reports published by TMZ.com, Buff’s wife called emergency 911 after Bagwell called her and informed her that he was about to have a seizure.

Marc “Buff” Bagwell started his wrestling career in 1991, and was an active member of the independent wrestling scene when the crash happened on Monday.

She adds, Buff “has had a seizure before from the same thing.”

Another 911 caller, an eyewitness who ran to Bagwell’s aid after the accident, claims the 42-year-old was barely conscious with “a lot of blood on his face.”

The caller claims no other car was involved in the accident. Buff is currently in intensive care at a nearby hospital.
