Savio Vega is probably best known to wrestling fans from his 1990s run with the then-WWF, which included feuds with rising stars Steve Austin and Rocky Maivia. The 58 year old has stayed plenty busy since his last WWE match in 1998*, though. That’s included work in the ring and behind the scenes for MLW, but for the most part Vega’s been working for the IWA in his native Puerto Rico.
It was that promotion which revealed on Saturday (Aug. 20) Vega had been rushed to the hospital. As of last report, the Nation of Domination veteran is still hospitalized, but is said to be in stable condition while undergoing tests & treatment.
