Wrestling veteran and current AAA Director of Talent Vampiro took to Facebook earlier today to announce that he has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease.

"Got some results from the doctor yesterday," he wrote. "Not the best of news. But in my heart I know it's a fight I am gonna win. I am not worried about anything. I am worried about how I can give more back to everyone who needs support. I Don't give a f--k about being sick , as me and my doctors have a plan! And I will be fine!"

The former WCW Tag Team Champion, who turns 52 on May 31, returned to Facebook this evening and posted a video for his fans. He noted that the disease in the beginning stages and said it's "not that big of a deal" to him because he knows he will beat it.

He had his best matches in Mexico. I used to have a bunch of his matches downloaded on lime wire.

 

When he came to WCW, he didn't look the same at all.

 

51 with alzheimers. That's insane.

If true I wish him the best, but I'm really skeptical. Even going back to the Mexico days and his interviews with Bob Barnett, the dude is known to exaggerate (or lie outright) to get attention.

How many announcements is he going to make? We get it, no need to keep repeating it

If true I wish him well is this condition related to post concussion syndrome.

Maybe he keeps forgetting he already announced it.

I certainly wish him well. 

Not trying to be a dick but he’s announced previously that he has had brain and stomach cancer.
