Former WWE Star Manu Responds To Rumors That He’s On “Deathbed”


Afa Anoa’i, Jr., who wrestled for WWE in 2008 and 2009 under the name Manu, revealed Wednesday that he is fine after rumors surfaced that he was in bad health.

On Facebook, Anoa’i, Jr. posted this humorous video of himself and fellow WWE alum Gene Snitsky in response to rumors that he’s on “deathbed.”

The rumors were based on some cryptic messages he had been posting on Facebook in recent days about being very sick and making frequent trips to a doctor near his home in Pennsylvania.

He wrote last Wednesday, “Fighting a losing battle! ‪#‎KeepMeInPrayers.”

Anoa’i, Jr. also said that he had been puking a lot.

“Eventually I’ll stop getting sick ‪#‎PukedAllWeek‬ ‪#‎IbetterLoseSomeWeightAfterAllThis‬ ‪#‎SaveMe‬ ‪#‎BringMeFluids‬ lol,” he wrote on Thursday.

Anoa’i Jr. continues to wrestle regularly after being released by WWE in February 2009. In recent years, he has been attached to Pennsylvania Premiere Wrestling as well as World Wrestling Council in Puerto Rico.
