Impact Wrestling star Michael Paris, a.k.a. DJ Z, is undergoing surgery today after suffering an injury during a match for the Crash promotion last night in Mexico City. Paris posted the video below in an ambulance and explained that he was immobile after taking a 450 splash. He said that the move knocked the wind out of him, and he was unable to stand up.
At least the match was good and the crowd threw money in the ring. If the match sucked and i got hurt id cry pic.twitter.com/kuGIC0mEAq— D J Z (@IAmDJZ) April 6, 2017
Charlie Santo, who wrestles as Gringo Loco, was with Paris last night and wrote on his Facebook that Paris "suffered multiple injuries" during the match. Santo stated that Paris ruptured his colon and was bleeding internally. Santo noted that he has "never witnessed someone in more pain than him," and asked fans to keep him in their prayers. Below is the full post from Santo:
UPDATE: Please keep Michael Paris in your prayers. He suffered multiple injuries during his match last night at The Crash. I was with him the entire night and I've never witnessed someone in more pain than him.
He will be undergoing surgery later today to stop the internal bleeding that occurred. With all of our prayers, if he's very lucky the doctor said if all goes well the recovery time will be short. Let's all pray that happens
UPDATE: after a sleepless night and countless documents to get this all under way, Michael Paris is going into a major surgery as I write this . He's been coherent and talking the entire time but in excruciating pain every minute. After numerous exams , they found that the colon was fractured and bleeding internally , which was causing all the pain and discomfort. They're going to try to repair it first and if that doesn't work , it only gets more complicated. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers . I personally have been over run with emotion since last night wishing I could help him. They only thing we Can do now is wait. I'll update as soon as anything is told to me.
