• “I might not have nothing pretty soon” – WWE Hall Of Famer

WWE Hall of Famer Abdullah The Butcher is facing a tough time at the age of 82.

During an interview with Click on Detroit, Abdullah claimed that his wife and wife’s brother ripped him of everything he had:

“Well, at 82 years old, I sit in my room a lot of times and I say that I’ve worked for nothing.

All of what I had worked for in the wrestling business by acting crazy, beating my head against the wall, doing this, doing that – I might not have nothing pretty soon.

You got a lot of people who try to take what you worked all your life for. In my opinion, I’ve been ripped off so bad it’s unbelievable, and I’m still getting ripped off.”

Indy wrestler “Hannibal” Devon Nicholson once sued Abdullah for giving him Hepatitis-C for sharing a blade (to perform a blade job) with him without his knowledge.

Abdullah doesn’t know how to read or write, so he didn’t know he was summoned to court, so he lost the lawsuit by default, and ended up losing $2.3 million.

He needs a hip replacement right now and a GoFundMe has been set up for him. The goal is $60,000 and over $7,500 have been raised so far. Chris Jericho donated $2,500. Tap here if you’d like to donate.

Abdullah’s story will be covered in the upcoming season of Dark Side Of The Ring.
