Wrestling icon Sabu has been hospitalised in Pennsylvania after promoters found him unconscious in a hotel room room before a big fight night on Saturday (28Apr12)
The star, real name Terry Brunk, was scheduled to appear at a Extreme Championship Wrestling reunion event and when he failed to show, handlers tracked him down to his hotel.
Sources tell Tmz.com that the fighter had an allergic reaction to a medication he had been taking.
A representative for the event says, "Sabu was found unresponsive in his hotel room... Management is currently awaiting results from his doctors to find out what actually happened.
"All we know is that he had prior health issues that might have been a contributing factor. We're pulling for him and are very concerned for his health. We wish him the best of luck in his recovery."
Many ticket-holders couldn't get into the O2 Arena show on Tuesday night (September 19th) because they didn't bring photo ID to match their booking.
An album re-release, a new song and a documentary mark the singer's legacy this year.
The film will be the first in the Marvel Cinematic Universe led by a person of colour.
The actor plays the titular hero in the forthcoming adaptation.
