Brian James a.k.a. “Road Dogg” has been hospitalized with the belief that he likely suffered a heart attack this past week.

As posted by his wife Tracy James on Facebook:

I want to thank everyone for the prayers and text. Brian most likely suffered a heart attack late Thursday night after returning from Orlando. He has had test run and we’re currently waiting for the results. He has also seen a kidney specialist and will have a stress test done. He’s always been on bp meds for high bp. Just please pray all the test come back for something we can fix. I am a total wreck but I’m trying so hard to be positive! Please pray for Brian He feels horrible and for God to please heal my husband so he can come home! Thank y’all all so much!

Just an update. Doc just came in. Kidneys came back clear and a heart cath is scheduled for Monday and they will determine then what’s to be done. Please continue to pray for him and his doctors. And our family. Thank y’all and we love y’all!

James, 51, serves as a producer with NXT after previously holding a role as head writer of SmackDown.

He was a star during the Attitude Era teaming with Billy Gunn as the New Age Outlaws and a member of DX until leaving the company in 2001. He is a former six-time tag champion with Gunn and held the Intercontinental and Hardcore Championships.

We wish Brian James a complete recovery and send out wishes to those around him.

Get well soon Mr. D-O-DOUBLE G!
