Former WWE legend Manu has been hospitalized after suffering a serious cardiac issue.
According to a recent GoFundMe page, the 38-year-old WWE icon Manu — AKA Afa Anoa’i Jr. — is “fighting for his life” after being diagnosed with an unexpected complex heart issue.
The fundraiser’s goal is to raise over $100,000 to cover medical expenses.
According to the GoFundMe page, Manu has been in the hospital since September 23.
And the fundraiser revealed the latest on the WWE superstar.
“He is currently fighting for his life at the moment,” Mike Klecker, a member of Manu’s family, wrote on the GoFundMe page.
“He went through many tests and major cardiac procedures.
“His heart injection fraction is only working at 35% and his heart is filling with fluid by the hours.
“Afa has an extremely long road to recovery. He has major medical bills, and medications needed.”
Manu represented the Anoa’i dynasty before the current wave of WWE legends: Roman Reigns, the Uso brothers – Jey and Jimmy – and Solo Sikoa.
He had a short stint with WWE’s Deep South Wrestling and Florida Championship Wrestling before making his debut in 2007.
A year later, Manu would return to the WWE and was part of The Legacy with Randy Orton and Cody Rhodes.
Manu left the WWE in 2009 but the 38-year-old revealed that the wrestling company contacted him earlier in the year.
“I’m trying to get back on the radar,” Manu said in 2023.
