Longtime pro wrestler Jimmy Rave (a/k/a James Guffey) announced his retirement over the weekend after having his left arm amputated. Rave wrote via social media (read the full post below) that he tried to tough out a medical issue with his left arm. By the time he went to a doctor, it was determined that he had an infection that was severe enough that his arm had to be amputated.
Powell’s POV: Rave debuted in 1999 and has worked for Ring of Honor, Impact Wrestling, and various independent groups. It’s a tragic story and I wish him the absolute best in his recovery and going forward.
