Former ECW wrestler Pat 'Simon Diamond' Kenney suffers 'mild stroke'

Kenney is the current director of talent relations for the NWA.

Former ECW/TNA wrestler Pat "Simon Diamond" Kenney is out of the hospital after recently suffering a stroke.

PWInsider reported today that Kenney was hospitalized this past Friday after suffering what he described as a "mild stroke." He was released from the hospital on Wednesday.

PWInsider's report states that the 53-year-old Kenney "is currently dealing with impaired vision and will have a long recovery period ahead." Kenney, who works for the NWA as their director of talent relations, won't be in attendance at the Crockett Cup this weekend. PWInsider wrote that the two-night event will be headed up by Kyle Davis.

The Crockett Cup is being held at the Nashville Fairgrounds in Nashville, Tennessee this Saturday and Sunday. 

Kenney tweeted on Tuesday night: "Life is precious. Hug your [children], tell family & friends you love them. Life is a girl, DO NOT take it for granted."

Kenney hasn't wrestled since 2010. He teamed with Johnny Swinger & Kid Kash in a loss to The FBI at TNA Hardcore Justice that year.
