CALEDONIA — Caledonia-Mumford icon and former WWE Star, Matt Cappotelli, 38, passed after a battle with Cancer.
According to a Facebook post on the Team Capp Page by his wife Lindsey, her husband passed away Friday.
“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.”
Cappotelli, was a former WWE wrestler and Tough Enough 3 Champion. The icon was a football star for the Cal-Mum Raider’s in the late 90’s and went on to play college football.
Cappotelli resided in Louisville, Kentucky.
