Saturn comes back from... being SHOT?
Wrestling-News.com and USA Pro is reporting that former ECW, WCW, NWA TNA and WWE (as part of the Radicalz) star Perry Saturn is making his return to the ring at a USA Pro show in September, following a long layoff due to injury.
From USA Pro:
In April of 2004 Perry Saturn was driving his girlfriend to work when he heard what he thought was an argument next to a vehicle. When he approached the vehicle, he saw two men trying to restrain a woman as they were raping her. Without hesitation, he grabbed both men off her, and started fighting with them. As he was able to get the woman free from her attackers, he felt a burning sensation in his neck. He thought originally it was a cut stemming from a punch. However, he learned soonafter he was shot three times in the neck with a 25 caliber handgun.
Perry Saturn now has a steel plate and 3 stainless steel screws where his C-5, C-6 and C-7 vertabre in his neck were badly injured. The good news is that after a very tough and extensive amount of physical therapy and training, he is able to return to wrestling. When you think about it, it's amazing he is even alive, or even able to walk!
The USA Pro show will be held on September 17 at the Amazura Concert Hall in Jamaica, NY.
