Marcus Bagwell, formerly known to the wrestling world as “Buff” Bagwell, is recovering from a serious auto accident.

Earlier this week, the Cobb County Police Department Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) Unit released the following official report regarding an accident involving Bagwell driving a Chevy Tahoe on August 16th.

“The Cobb County Police Department Selective Traffic Enforcement Program (STEP) Unit is investigating a serious injury traffic collision that occurred on Cumberland Boulevard east of Cumberland Parkway on Sunday, August 16, 2020, at 5:18 p.m.

According to investigators, a black 2013 Chevrolet Tahoe was traveling west on Cumberland Boulevard, approaching Cumberland Parkway when the driver lost control while negotiating a curve. The Chevrolet Tahoe collided with the center median and metal fence within the median before continuing west across the eastbound lanes. The Chevrolet Tahoe then collided with the curb before colliding into a free-standing bathroom at the Cobb County Transit (CCT) bus station.

The 50-year-old Bagwell was transported to Wellstar Kennestone Hospital with serious injuries and investigators believe the former wrestler was impaired by prescription meds during the collision.

Bagwell is a former five-time WCW World Tag Team Champion. He had a brief run in the WWE when the company bought WCW in 2001.

His post-wrestling career has been “interesting” to say the least. Bagwell was rumored to be working with Vivid video, worked briefly as a gigolo, and appeared on the Showtime show Gigolos.
