Tatanka: ‘Virgil Is Not Doing Good And Has Had Several Strokes’

During the heyday of Hulkamana, few villains garnered as much heat as WWE Hall of Fame inductee “The Million Dollar Man” Ted DiBiase. Escorting DiBiase to the ring and doing his bidding was Virgil, his butler of sorts. DiBiase and Virgil eventually split, which led to a match at WWE WrestleMania VII, which Virgil won. The two reunited years later as members of the NWO in WCW but have had a public falling out in recent years.

WWE legend Tatanka has shared the following on Facebook, updating fans on how Virgil is currently doing health-wise.

Got a message from a friend that Virgil is not doing good and has had several strokes! There is power in prayer! Everyone come together please and say a prayer for Virgil.. if it was u, u would want the same! ❤️#LoveOneAnother We’re all imperfect human beings on this journey called life!

Virgil made a handful of appearances for AEW in 2019 and 2020 under the name Soul Train Jones. His pre-taped and live appearances we always in conjunction with Chris Jericho and The Inner Circle. Virgil also released a mobile game in 2021 called Meatsauce Madness, capitalizing on his popular “Meatsauce” catchphrase that he popularized on social media.

Haus of Wrestling sends its best to Virgil, his family, and his friends during this difficult time.
