Paul said, “I got a quick text message saying don’t take time, pack a bag real quick, and head to the emergency room. I was nosediving and was sorta at the one-yard line of where you don’t want to be. As far as in-ring, I’m done. I will never wrestle again. First of all, I have a defibrillator in my chest, and it’s probably not wise for me to get zapped on live TV.”
