That’s serious. There are all kinds of health issues that wrestlers have to face throughout their careers, but the problems do not end there. Once their careers are over, there are several problems that others can face which non-wrestlers deal with as well. Unfortunately that is the case again, as former wrestler is now facing some serious medical issues of his own.

In a new post on Instagram, WWE legend Tatanka revealed that a friend told him that former WWE Superstar Virgil has suffered a series of strokes and is “not doing good”. There is no word on what kinds of issues the strokes have caused. Virgil has not commented on the situation.

Virgil had a long run in WWE. Check out his time in the company:

Opinion: You never want to hear something like that and hopefully everything starts turning around for Virgil. Strokes are a rather serious situation and it could take quite a long time for Virgil to recover. It would be great to hear that he comes out of all of this, though unfortunately right now about all we can do is wait and see how things go for him going forward.

What did you think of Virgil’s career? Where did he do his best work? Let us know in the comments below.
