Virgil was one of the highlights of WWE during the 80s and early 90s. He was largely a mid-carder in his career, working alongside Ted DiBiase. He also apologized to everyone he has ever wronged recently.

Virgil has not worked in WWE for several years now. In spite of that, he has managed to keep himself relevant due to his social media posts. Virgil then revealed he had suffered two strokes.

That was not all, as Virgil then revealed that he is suffering from stage 2 colon cancer. Virgil took to Twitter recently and in a series of tweets, apologized to those he has wronged in the past and also thanked fans for all their support.

I want to take the time & say thankful for all the help. It has been very hardtimes & could not make it without all of you. I know in the past I made mistakes, been hard to work with & been hard to fans.Sometimes, when you have been blessed to be its hard.


When those days end. To those who I have wronged I’m sorry. God has opened my eyes and I believe he has put me through this journey to wake me up and show me it’s better to be honest, trustworthy and ask for forgiveness.

I like to thank Chris Jericho, Paul Orndorff’s son, and others who have reached out and helped. And to the many wrestling fans who have helped through prayer and donations thank you. I am at my first finish line and would love your support

Love you all.
