Hopefully things get better. Wrestlers have a strange career trajectory, as they are likely to be retired from the ring by their mid 40s, but can still pop back in for a cameo from time to time. It can change the perception that fans have of them, as they might still seem like big stars despite their diminishing status. This means they might not be in as good shape as some fans believe, either financially or health wise. That seems to be the case again with a wrestling legend.
Earlier this year, a story came out about Brian Knobbs of the Nasty Boys undergoing health issues and being hospitalized. A Go Fund Me has been set up for Knobbs, and a new update has revealed that he has undergone a setback. According to the update, Knobbs fell at a rehabilitation facility and broke his clavicle while also injuring his head, which will require nine stitches. There is currently an effort to move him to a more appropriate rehabilitation facility, as he is currently in one designed for seniors.
Knobbs was part of a pretty great team. Check out what he did during his career:
Opinion: That certainly doesn’t sound good but at least Knobbs is getting some kind of help. Hopefully he can find something a little bit better suited to what he needs though as he would not seem quite ready for a seniors facility. Knobbs has not been around the public eye as much in recent years since his career is mostly done, but he still should get the help that he needs.
What was your favorite Nasty Boys match? Could Knobbs have been a singles star? Let us know in the comments below.
