• “To those who I have wronged I’m sorry. God has opened my eyes” – Virgil
WWF Veteran Virgil recently said he’s dealing with the following health issues:
– One arm not working due to 2 massive strokes
– Early stage of Dementia
– Colon Cancer
Virgil took to Twitter to post the following heartfelt message:
“I want to take the time & say thankful for all the help. It has been very hard times & could not make it without all of you.
I know in the past I made mistakes, been hard to work with & been hard to fans. Sometimes, when you have been blessed to be its hard.
When those days end. To those who I have wronged I’m sorry. God has opened my eyes and I believe he has put me through this journey to wake me up and show me it’s better to be honest, trustworthy and ask for forgiveness.
I like to thank Chris Jericho, Paul Orndorff’s son, and others who have reached out and helped. And to the many wrestling fans who have helped through prayer and donations thank you.
I am at my first finish line and would love your support.
Love you all.”

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (June 14, 2013) – Old School WCW Veteran Passed Away
On this day in 2013, we lost Old School WCW Veteran Al Green (Real name: Alfred Dobalo) at the age of 57 due to COPD.
In 1990 & 1991, Al wrestled as “Blade”, teaming with Steel (Kevin Nash) as ‘The Master Blasters’, before in 1992 Green changed his name to “Rage”, one half of ‘The Wrecking Crew’.
After touring Japan & Europe during the mid-90s, he returned to World Championship Wrestling in the summer of 1998 and wrestled for them until he was released in March 2000, but was used for the most part as a ‘Jobber To The Stars’ during his final WCW run.
