In an unfortunate story, a former “Monday Night Raw” General Manager appears to have developed quite a serious health issue.

According to a report from NBC 5 in Chicago, Mike Adamle has been diagnosed with dementia and what doctors believe could be Chronic Traumatic Encephalopathy, also known as CTE.

According to a new interview, Adamle says that he has been on both short and long term disability for 19 years, due to both seizures and epilepsy.

In addition to the seizures, Adamle said that he suffers from dramatic mood swings, episodes of rage, depression, anxiety and memory loss.

“The pain comes from embarrassment,” he said. “Sitting down, not being able to remember things. Like I said, everybody’s got that, don’t make a big thing out of it because everybody gets it. But sometimes I wake up in the morning, like I’ll throw up, and there’s times you get really depressed and you don’t want to see anybody and I try to fight those days.”

We at Wrestling Rumors wish all of the best for Mike Adamle as he struggles with these current health issues.
