Health Update on Konnan & More

Archive reported today that Konnan had problems with his kidney replacement, as his body is rejecting the kidney, and was hospitalized in Tijuana yesterday. He is being kept for observation for at least another day, and is being treated with “anti-rejection drugs.” He is in our thoughts as he recovers from surgery and hopefully the kidney takes.

In another health-related item from, long-time wrestling writer and ovarian cancer survivor Georgiann Makropolus is raising money for Ovations for the Cure. Chris Jericho will be appearing on August 18 from 3 to 5pm at the event, which is being held at the McDonald’s in Canton, CT, and you can get discount tickets for $5 from Georgiann. Tickets can be redeemed on August 18 between 4 and 7pm, exchanged for a quarter pounder with cheese extra value meal, and the goal is 1,000 cards through the drive-thru between 5 and 6.
