Prichard suffers heart attack

John Layfield, a former business partner of Bruce Prichard and long time co-worker with him wrote on his facebook page that Prichard had suffered two heart attacks this past week.

According to information we received, the heart issue actually took place the prior week, which was why he wasn't at the TNA PPV or tapings this week.  He had surgery to put two stents in his heart and while hospitalized, suffered the heart attack.

Prichard is the head of talent relations as well as head of creative at TNA.  He had a long history with WWF/E, on-and-off dating back to 1987, where he for years performed on television as Brother Love.  He originally got started at a young age working with his brother for Houston promoter Paul Boesch.

We wish him well in his recovery.
