Brian Knobs Rushed To The Hospital With Major Stomach Issues

Former WWE/WCW World Tag Team Champion Brian Knobs of the Nasty Boys was rushed to the hospital on Tuesday 8/10 due to what is being described as “major stomach issues.”

Knobs’ friend Fred Jung says that Knobs doctors expressed concern for his health and he is undergoing a battery of tests to figure out what is going on. He is expected to remain in the hospital for at least a couple of months. In addition to the stomach issues, Knobs’s good knee has given out and the hope is that surgery will allow him to walk again. Knobs also has Type 2 diabetes.

A GoFundMe has been set up to help raise funds to help cover his medical costs. You can check out the GoFundMe page by clicking here.

Last year during an interview on Sean Mooney’s podcast, Knobs said that his body is breaking down due to his years on the road and the party lifestyle.

Knobs said, “Everything is catching up with me. I turned 57 this year. My body is all beaten up and broken down. Saggs got hurt in ‘97, I think. I went on by myself. That 2 years in WCW Hardcore, going through tables, wrestling Fit Findlay, Bam Bam Bigelow, Hak, every night we were hitting ourselves with old tables from the building. That really took a toll on my body which I didn’t know at the time. Now, after all these years, I’m beat up. I can honestly tell you, 35 years in the business, it has taken a toll. Now I am Type 2 diabetic. My foot got infected. It went up to my knee and they had to do an operation on my foot. They gave me a new knee because my knee was totally infected. It was hell. I was in the hospital for three weeks and then rehab for four weeks. I want to thank people who contributed to my Go Fund Me.”

We wish the best for Knobs.
