Impact star Joe Doering battling brain cancer again

Impact Wrestling announced that one of its stars, Joe Doering, will be taking a step back from wrestling to concentrate on his health after he informed management that his brain cancer has returned.

Doering, 40, had brain cancer six years ago, and will be undergoing surgery to hopefully eliminate it again. He had already undergone surgery, chemo, and radiation for his first bout with cancer and it took him a year to get back in ring shape.

“They told me in 2016 that I would never wrestle again, and I proved them wrong. Guess I’m going to have to do it again,” Doering said. “I try to not get too sad or emotional about it. Staying positive really helped me the first time, and that’s what I’ll do again.”

Scott D’Amore, Impact Wrestling Executive Vice President, said, “I know our fans and the wider wrestling community will join everyone at Impact in keeping Joe and his wife Lindsay in their thoughts and prayers. Joe loves pro wrestling and we all look forward to him returning to action when he’s ready.”
