Brian Knobs Rushed To Hospital For Major Stomach Issues, Also Needs Knee Surgery

Prayers are needed for Brian Knobs, as he’s going through some tough times and facing major health issues.

A GoFundMe was opened for Knobs, the former WWE/WCW star and one-half of the ‘Nasty Boys’ tag team. Brian Knobs was hospitalized on Tuesday morning due to major stomach issues and will also need immediate knee surgery.

From the GoFundMe page:

With over 30 years of Sports entertainment under his belt, legendary professional wrestler, Brian “Nasty Boy” Knobs is no stranger to pain and adversity. From coast to coast, he’s entertained the masses in unforgettable matches. But now Brian is facing the fight of his life, literally, because his health has taken a sudden turn for the worse.

Just yesterday, Brian was rushed by ambulance to the emergency ward where he is going through a battery of tests to determine the severity of his major stomach issues. His doctors have expressed extreme concern and told Brian that he will probably remain in the hospital for at least the next couple of months. Coupled with his stomach issues, Brian’s good knee has finally given out and requires a surgery if he hopes to walk again.

Brian is a proud man who has tirelessly worked his entire life to be self-sufficient. Like all of us, he has struggled through the pandemic, and just recently attempted new work travel, but the extreme pain forced him to stop. Compounding his failing physical health, Brian has lost many of his closest friends in the business to health issues of their own, which has seriously dampened his mental outlook. Losing his ability to hit the road and make a living, and having Limited insurance to cover his mounting medical and household bills, Brian is humbly reaching out for help with a GoFundMe campaign. He’s not looking for a hand out, but rather asking for a hand up to help him heal.

For our good friend in need, we ask Brian’s family, friends, and fans to please pitch in any contribution they can to help him through this fight for his life. With deep appreciation, Brian thanks everyone for all their support and encouragement through the years, and for any donation they can possibly make to help him overcome this challenging new chapter in his life.

Please note that all donations go directly to Brian.

Last year, Brian Knobs spoke with Sean Mooney and opened up about how his body was starting to break down due to his wrestling career, including his solo run in WCW. He told Mooney that the two years he spent in WCW wrestling hardcore matches really took a toll on his body, but he didn’t know it at that time. Knobs said he’s now a Type-2 diabetic and already had one knee surgery due to an infection.
