Aalyah And Dominik Mysterio Offered To Donate Their Kidneys To Konnan
recently announced he started dialysis and he’s waiting for a kidney donor to have a transplant. During a recent episode of his Keepin’ It 100
podcast, the wrestling legend shared (via WrestlingNews.co
) that Dominik and Aalyah Mysterio actually reached out and offered to donate their kidneys to him.
“It’s an ongoing thing to get a f-cking kidney donor. I actually have seven people from the show, and believe it or not bro, this is beautiful, do you know who offered me their kidney? Dominik and Aalyah, both.”
Konnan went on to explain how he’s been in rough shape physically, noting how he’s lost 70 pounds and had been incredibly weak. He noted how dialysis saved him and went on to explain how he ended up having another issue with his kidneys.
“I’ll tell you what saved me bro is the fu**ing dialysis. I didn’t want to do it. This is my second kidney replacement. A lot of people think, ‘Oh steroids.’ Well, if it’s steroids, why don’t more people have kidney problems?”
“What actually happened is, I was in an extreme match in Tijuana, and a ladder came all the way from the top and I was looking the other way, and it landed and it fu**ing broke my kidney and I didn’t even know it because I just thought it was normal pain.”
“Not too long ago, I did an angle in AEW with the FTR guys. They gave me this pile driver and I never had time to like, go, because I got there late. We were like second on, and next thing you knew, we were in the trailer and we were going to the fu**ing ring. So they never really showed me how to do the pile driver. So it’s like this weird different pile driver I’d never taken, and when I hit, I went like, holy sh*t. I felt that.”
“Then for months and months, I was having problems with my back, with my traps, with my ribs, and I just thought it was a pinched nerve. When I finally went to the fu**ing doctor, they were like, ‘No, you have a dislocated shoulder and a cracked rib.’ Bro, that hurt like a mother fu**er.”
“Same thing with the kidney. When I bursted, when it burst or whatever, I didn’t go to the hospital because you know, Mr. Macho here. Then finally when I had kidney problems, they were like, ‘Bro, your kidneys are so dehydrated, we don’t even know what to tell you.’”
Konnan said he had a terrible experience with dialysis the first time, but his doctor warned him that if he didn’t continue treatment that his organs would start shutting down. Konnan noted that he was so weak because of the lack of iron in his blood and started feeling much better once he continued treatment.
