Konnan is a very charming personality within the pro wrestling industry. His stints across WCW, Impact, MLW and AAA has garnered him some very loyal fans who are willing to do anything for him. Amid Konnan’s worsening health issues, his fans have stepped up to prove their love for the veteran pro wrestler.
Konnan opened up about his health issues on his podcast last week and told listeners that he’s in search of a kidney donor. On the latest episode of his Keeping it 100 podcast, he revealed that several fans reached out to him and offered to donate their kidneys to him.
“I don’t really like to talk about myself or make myself the victim or poor guy or, you know, that’s not me. But something really nice happened, man. I had a lot of candidates say, ‘Hey, I will donate a kidney to you.’ I’m very touched. I haven’t gotten back to anybody yet. But I will. And somebody’s gonna save my life, bro. You know, and that’s a beautiful thing. So it restores my faith in humanity, which I have very little left in it.”
Konnan expressed his gratitude to everyone that reached out to him after last week’s podcast. He also revealed how the stress surrounding his health issues has deprived him of sleep for the past five or six months.
“I want to thank all the people that offer this. It’s a beautiful thing. And, you know, so one of the things that I was having a problem with and I don’t know if I told you about, I haven’t slept like in five or six months. Literally, I’ve slept an hour a day, two hours a day. I stay up 50 hours straight. And I found that the reason was is because I was so stressed out that I couldn’t find a kidney. And the last few days, I’ve slept three hours, three hours to me is gold.”
Konnan also said that his kidney issues has severely affected his ability to keep doing the podcast. We hope that Konnan finds a suitable donor and finally rid himself of the issues that have been troubling him for so long. For more updates, stay tuned to Ringside News.
