Please don’t be bad. Wrestlers are on television every week, which is a lot more than you see from various other celebrities. It is almost weird to think about seeing someone every single week like that, but there is more to their lives than what you see on television. That can be both good or bad, and in this case a wrestling legend is having some pretty serious real life problems.

Brian Knobbs of the Nasty Boys has been hospitalized for some serious stomach issues along with a problem with his knee. It is not clear what is wrong with Knobbs, but he is expected to be in the hospital for several months to determine the issues. He will also need knee surgery if he is expected to be able to walk again. A GoFundMe has been set up to help with his expenses.

Knobbs had a heck of a career. Check out what he has done in the ring before:

Steiner Brothers vs. Nasty Boys - March 24, 1996

The Nasty Boys become the No. 1 contenders for the WWE Tag Team Titles: Superstars, Feb. 16, 1991

The Nasty Boys vs. Cactus Jack and Maxx Payne: WCW World Tag Team Championship Chicago Street Fight

Opinion: Hopefully Knobbs is ok, as this sounds like something rather serious. Knobbs has been around for a very long time now but has not been around the mainstream wrestling world in well over ten years. It is a shame that so many wrestlers have to rely on something like crowd funding but that is the reality for a good number of them. It would be great to see him come back from this, and I’m hoping that he can.

What did you think of the Nasty Boys? What is their best match? Let us know in the comments below.
