MAJOR Progess After Bloody Car Crash
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.”
