Per the report, the contestant suffered cardiac arrest just before noon on Wednesday. TBS issued the following statement on the incident: 

“We are devastated to have learned of his passing and our deepest sympathy goes out to the family.” 

As of this writing, there’s no word yet on how this will affect future episodes of the show as it’s currently in production. 

He’ll be joined by co-host Nicole Bayer and Camille Kostek. The show first premiered on ABC in 2008 and moved to TBS this year.

The legendary WWE Superstar and Shay Shariatzadeh were married on October 12th in Tampa, FL. Cena took part in the Firefly Fun House match against Bray Wyatt at WrestleMania 36 earlier this year. This was his most recent WWE appearance.
