Get well soon. There are all kinds of health issues that come with being a wrestler and you never know when one of them might flare up. Wrestling can be quite the devastating sport to a wrestler’s body, but there are other issues that come up after they leave the ring. Now we seem to be seeing another former WWE star dealing with some serious health issues now that his career is over.
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: Open Invitation: Major Update On Edge’s WWE Contract Status, AEW Debut Possible
Former WWE Superstar Afa Jr., 38 years old, better known as Manu, has been hospitalized with a heart issue that has resulted in his heart injection fraction working at only 35% and his heart filling with fluid. A GoFundMe has been set up to support Afa Jr. and help deal with his medical bills. Afa Jr. is still active on the independent circuit and last wrestled earlier this month.
He had a nice WWE run. Check out some of his time in the company:
Opinion: Egads that is terrible to see as you never want to hear about someone having health issues whatsoever, especially when someone is this young. Afa Jr. is someone who is still active in wrestling and should not be having this kind of issue. Hopefully everything winds up being ok, as you never want to see someone dealing with this kind of problem no matter what.
