Konnan is a pro wrestling legend due to his contributions to the industry as he has competed in numerous promotions such as WCW, Impact, MLW and AAA. His health is not the best right now and this continues to worry fans. Now it seems Dominik and Aalyah Mysterio are willing to donate their kidneys to Konnan.
As fans know by now, Konnan has been dealing with kidney problems for a long time. In fact, his health issues got progressively worse to the point that Konnan needs kidney donor to treat his problems.
As previously reported, Konnan has already started dialysis for his kidney problems. While speaking on the latest Keepin’ It 100 with Konnan podcast, Konnan talked about his ongoing health issues. Konnan revealed that Dominik and Aalyah Mysterio are willing to donate their kidneys to Konnan.
“I was in terrible shape. This is the worst year that I’ve ever been in. This was a great year for me professionally, but health wise, it was the worst year of my life. There were two times this year where I honestly thought, you know, just being very honest, and I don’t really talk too much about myself that I was going to end the year alive. You know, I was very weak, very weak, really bad shape, despondent, sad, skinny. I lost 70 pounds and just in really bad shape.
“I’ll tell you what saved me bro is the fu**ing dialysis. I didn’t want to do it. This is my second kidney replacement. A lot of people think, ‘Oh steroids.’ Well, if it’s steroids, why don’t more people have kidney problems?
“What actually happened is, I was in an extreme match in Tijuana, and a ladder came all the way from the top and I was looking the other way, and it landed and it fu**ing broke my kidney and I didn’t even know it because I just thought it was normal pain.
“Not too long ago, I did an angle in AEW with the FTR guys. They gave me this pile driver and I never had time to like, go, because I got there late. We were like second on, and next thing you knew, we were in the trailer and we were going to the fu**ing ring. So they never really showed me how to do the pile driver. So it’s like this weird different pile driver I’d never taken, and when I hit, I went like, holy sh*t. I felt that.
“Then for months and months, I was having problems with my back, with my traps, with my ribs, and I just thought it was a pinched nerve. When I finally went to the fu**ing doctor, they were like, ‘No, you have a dislocated shoulder and a cracked rib.’ Bro, that hurt like a mother fu**er.
“Same thing with the kidney. When I bursted, when it burst or whatever, I didn’t go to the hospital because you know, Mr. Macho here. Then finally when I had kidney problems, they were like, ‘Bro, your kidneys are so dehydrated, we don’t even know what to tell you.’
The first time I went to get dialysis was one of the worst experiences of my life and I said, ‘There’s no way I’ll ever do this sh*t again.’ Then not too long ago, I was in really bad shape and the doctor said, ‘In one month, your internal organs are going to start shutting down. So it’s up to you. Do you want to do dialysis or not?’ I was like, fu**, and then I started it. It’s been incredible. It’s been an incredible experience. They clean your blood. I didn’t have iron. That’s why I was so fu**ing weak. They put iron into your body, and they put phosphorus and all the other elements that your body isn’t producing or filtering anymore, the dialysis machine does it for you.
It’s an ongoing thing to get a fu**ing kidney donor. I actually have seven people from the show, and believe it or not bro, this is beautiful, do you know who offered me their kidney? Dominik and Aalyah, both.”
Even fans previously offered to donate their kidneys to Konnan. We certainly hope Konan will be able to get the help he needs, especially when it comes to him getting a kidney donation. We will keep you updated on his ongoing condition.
