TMZ spoke with Judy Bagwell, who provided the good news that Buff Bagwell is finally breathing and eating on his own. She said that the former WCW superstar was hooked up to a breathing tube while emergency room doctors focused on treating the injuries to his face and spine.

Judy had more news to report, including that Buff was contacted by some of his friends in WCW, including Scott and Rick Steiner, Diamond Dallas Page and Sting. "The breathing tube was removed on Wednesday ... he is talking ... he's eating solid foods. [Doctors] were really shocked that he was communicating so soon ... he's a fighter. It's really helped that he's been contacted by friends ... he's really feeling the love."

Bagwell suffered a seizure behind the wheel of his Jeep, causing it to flip.
