Capillary burst to blame for Steamboat health issue

The latest on the health of WWE Hall of Famer Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat (real name Richard Blood) is that a capillary burst caused bleeding on the brain following results of an angiogram. The original diagnosis was a brain aneuyrsm. Steamboat, 57, will remain hospitalized for another five days and will be given another angiogram to determine how he is recovering. The serious issue was the bleeding on the brain as capillary bursts are known to heal themselves and are often caused by blunt force. Doctors who examined Steamboat don’t believe the capillary burst was related to the angle Monday night on WWE Raw involving the Nexus attack.
