Virgil diagnosed with early stages of dementia

Former WWE and WCW star Virgil revealed in a post on Twitter that he has been diagnosed with early stages of dementia.

Virgil said that over WrestleMania weekend he was feeling unwell and went to get checked.

The first news, which was also a surprise, was that he suffered from two strokes that he was unaware of. He called this “decent news” but was not ready for the next one.

“The worse news is that I have been told that I am fighting with an early stage of dementia,” Virgil said.

“I’m nervous, I’m scared & God knows I can’t afford 2 get through this & even make a living. It’s really sad as all I want to do is have fun & do what I always do. Survive.”

Dementia affects the brain and eventually results in forgetting to do even the most simple and basic things in life, requiring 24/7 care.
