"I don't mean to exaggerate, but this was a religious experience. Cappotelli came out, turned over the belt to Danny Davis, talked honestly with the crowd about his condition, talked about chemotherapy and brain surgery, and then prayed with the audience. And everyone prayed with him. All the wrestlers, heels and babyfaces, surrounded the ring. When it was over, Jeter came in the ring - out of character - and hugged Cappotelli. After the show, Cappotelli stood at the front door and hugged every single member of the crowd. He was there until after Midnight, and the speech ended at 9:45. He prayed with people. He shook hands. He hugged. He took pictures. I have never in my life experienced anything like that. Did Paul E. do this stuff in ECW? No one who was here tonight left unchanged. I can't describe it."
And that's it. The entire news item. Gee, Inside Pulse, thanks for no information. Hugs all around is touching and all, but what's wrong with him? A vague reference to "chemotherapy and brain surgery" is not good enough.
I'd go elsewhere for news on this, but 411 doesn't have it and my poor pop-up blocker can't handle the stress everywhere else.
Edit: Dave said he has a brain tumor and announced last night he has brain cancer.
Ah, much better. I usually don't visit Dave unless someone links to him -- I don't like his format and he's usually not the greatest with speed.
That news really sucks, by the way, though it seems pretty unnecessary to say so. Too bad for Cappotelli. At least Inside Pulse didn't pull their usual trick of sending him and his family their best wishes, as if any of them are reading.

I thought it was an enjoyable read. I wish the whole book was out there somewhere, but I'm really hoping Scott's third book will be about the Disco Inferno's rise to domination of wrestling, film, and the pop charts.
