Orton's Face Turn, "Earthquake" Battles Cancer, Guerrero vs Angle vs Bradshaw

* John "Earthquake" Tenta updated his fans on his ongoing battle with cancer on his Wrestlecrap.com forum yesterday, and unfortunately, his health has taken a turn for the worse. He wrestled in the WWF and WCW during the late '80s and early '90s as Earthquake, Golga, Avalanche, and the Shark. He announced in May that he was ending his in-ring career to battle bladder cancer.

Tenta writes:

"Well 'Crappers i know you've been waiting for an update so here it is. The silence was due to the fact I was moving into our new residence a couple weeks ago. Well, I don't know how to say this other than I've NEVER been kicked in the balls as hard as I was last Wednesday. Thinking I was licking this thing I met with my chemo doctor ready to 'Quake the cancer. Well..... I now have a new tumor in my left lung, and two lymph nodes are enlarged in my heart. I go in for chemo tomorrow for a 4-day session.(The beginning of many) I've been given 13-18 months to live. I'm not giving up, and hope to of course live longer, but that is what I've been told, and that it is incurable. I don't really know what else to say, it really caught me off guard. I'll try keep you posted, but no guarantees folks.

Thank you for all your kind support, and may God bless you all.
