• Mick Foley Reacts To A Recent Heartbreaking Photo Of Steve ‘Mongo’ McMichael
Last year, we reported that WCW Veteran Steve ‘Mongo’ McMichael is suffering from Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), a neurodegenerative neuromuscular disease.
Here’s what Steve said about his disease last year:
“I promise you, this epitaph that I’m going to have on me now? This ain’t ever how I envisioned this was going to end.
I want everybody to realize why they’re no longer going to see me around. I thought I was ready for anything, but man, this will sneak up on you like a cheap-shotting Green Bay Packer.
I’m not going to be out in the public any more, you’re not going to see me out doing appearances, hell I can’t even sign my name any more, and everybody’s going to be speculating, ‘Where’s McMichael, what’s wrong with him?’
I’m here to tell everyone I’ve been diagnosed with ALS, Lou Gehrig’s Disease, so I’m not going to be a public figure any more.”
Here’s a photo of McMichael from 2021 that went viral:
A recent photo of McMichael went viral again and fans expressed their sadness on Twitter:
