Stevel McMichael earned the nickname “Mongo” as a stalwart on the nearly-undefeated 1985 before moving onto a career as a successful pro wrestler with WCW in the mid 90s, has announced that he has ALS. The neurodegenerative disease – also known as Lou Gherig Disease – has robbed him of the use of his hands and arms, and is continuing to ravage his body. From WGN in Chicago: “I’m not going to be out in the public anymore…you’re not going to see me out doing appearances, hell, I can’t even sign my name anymore, and everybody’s going to be speculating ‘Where’s McMichael, what’s wrong with him?” McMichael said. “I’m here to tell everyone I’ve been diagnosed with ALS, Lou Gehrig’s Disease, so I’m not going to be a public figure anymore.”
