It has been revealed that David Arquette suffered a heart attack before his recent return to the pro wrestling world.
Actress Patricia Arquette (Boyhood, True Romance) — also David’s sister — recently appeared on the Ellen Show and she revealed that her brother suffered a heart attack around a year and a half ago, not long before his return to independent wrestling. Patricia admitted she wasn’t exactly happy about him returning to the ring.
“Well, he was the world champion of wrestling many, many years ago, so this is a revival of his wrestling career,” Patricia said. “So he started wrestling again, and it is scary. He’s older now, he had a heart attack, and now he’s wrestling. It really scares me. I actually don’t watch the matches because it would terrify me too much.”
