Sad news as Vampiro took to Facebook to announce that he has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's.
Vampiro put out the following statement:
Got some results from the doctor yesterday
Not the best of news
But in my heart I know it’s a fight I am gonna win
I am not worried about anything
I am worried about how I can give more back to everyone who needs support
I Don’t give a fuck about being sick , as me and my doctors have a plan! And I will be fine!
Alzheimer’s( it’s been detected) is bullshit. I am scared about potential Parkinson’s disease because it might fuck up my PlayStation time
I have been beaten up for so long , this is an easy one
Look at the news of the world
Bullshit going down
Just do what’s right and be cool to everyone
Don’t get involved in the stupid shit
Not worth it
Be safe y’all and talk soon
In an video later posted to Facebook, Vampiro said, "I’ve got some serious brain trauma from all the concussions"
Back in November 2018, Vampiro revealed that a neck and back injury keeps him from flying too often.
"Part of my condition, from this neck and back injury is that if I fly too often my body totally gives out and I lose all control of my legs and arms and hands . Basically I become like a vegetable . I literally can not walk. And so today I am in a wheelchair."
Vampiro last wrestled at WrestleCade in November. He has been wrestling since 1984 when he was just 16 years old.
