Jimmy Rave’s Last Interview Before His Death, MRSA in Dirty Wrestling, Why Doctors Had to Amputate His Legs

On this week’s Talk Is Jericho, Chris Jericho aired Jimmy Rave’s last interview recorded shortly before his death this week. Rave talks about contacting MRSA and losing a limb:

“About September or August of last year, I did some yard work. I shaved my arm. It hurt at first, but no matter what I’m going to run to the hospital. I put some Neosporin on it and went my way. Normally it would float a little above my left arm, but nothing crazy. Then one day I started having trouble using my hands. My pinky and ring fingers are trying not to open. At that point, I thought, I need to go to the hospital. They opened it. It eventually became MRSA. I’ve had MRSA a few other times due to a dirty ring. When you’re independent, you’re taking a chance every night. I went to the ER. They did some tests and they said, ‘We have to admit you right away.’ My arms are very warm to the touch. They say, ‘We think the infection will soon reach your heart, so we need to be extremely proactive about this.’ They put me in an IV and tried to work things out. They stopped it from reaching my heart, but then the infection caused me to lose a lot of muscle and damage to ligaments and things like that. They said, ‘We’ll have to bring your arm above the elbow.’ So it’s like I go in there one day healthy guy and the next day I walk out empty handed and with no way to make money. Of course, my life changed immediately. It’s hard to accept everything.”

“They grabbed my arm. They say, ‘Everything looks good.’ That was in November 2020. Then around May 2021, I started having real pain in my shin. I went back to the ER This time I didn’t let it go. They say, ‘We found MRSA in the bottom half of your feet. We’ll have to take your leg because it’s trying to get into your heart again. ‘ I was in the ER for a couple of days. They tried to alleviate everything and clear up the infection with just antibiotics, but then they said, ‘Your body will become infected if you don’t do something now. “

In the interview, Rave talked about his battle with addiction, how he’s adjusted to life as a three-armed amputee, his work as a mental health consultant, and more. spirit and drug peer support, and he shares stories of his time around Dusty Rhodes, Ricky Steamboat, working for TNA, NJPW, ROH, Samoa wrestler Joe with a broken jaw, union collaboration with Lance Archer, his cage match with CM Punk and more.
