Konnan needed to be hospitalized recently due to kidney issues and suffering from COVID-19. Thankfully, he is okay enough to be discharged.
The Wrestling Observer Newsletter reports that Konnan was released from the hospital on February 18th. He provided a short comment to let everyone know what was really going on. Things were apparently not good for a bit, but they have cleared up now.
“Was very sick last week was bedridden for three days, I got COVID went to hospital and my kidneys were failing.”
It was noted that for a time Konnan didn’t have contact with anyone except for his family and the Mysterio family. Dominik is his godson and he remains very close to them. Konnan was also in Las Vegas for the Inner Circle’s bit on Dynamite. That segment saw AEW cut out a ton of marijuana jokes.
Konnan received well-wishes from all over the pro wrestling business during his illness. Hopefully, he won’t have to go through anything like that again.
