5 Wrestlers who were diagnosed with cancer

These pro-wrestlers fought the disease despite the odds.

McCool was diagnosed with skin cancer

Cancer is perhaps one of the most hated and feared diseases in the world. With over 100 different types under its name, the disease ruins lives. Due to the sheer enormity of the disease, the ones that come out fighting always have a special place in our hearts.

Professional wrestlers are no different. Some wrestlers have been haunted by cancer and some have gone on to win their wars against cancer.

There is also a category of wrestlers who are still fighting the disease. In this list, we take a look at some of those wrestlers that have been diagnosed with cancer.


#5 Jim Duggan

Duggan was diagnosed with Kidney cancer

The current generation of WWE fans would probably think of Jim Duggan as the goofy Hall of Famer who shows up every now and then. However, his resume is actually pretty impressive. Duggan was the winner of the first ever Royal Rumble match and has held numerous championships throughout this lengthy career.

Unfortunately, he makes the list because he was diagnosed with kidney cancer. 

He was diagnosed with the disease back in 1998, but successfully defeated the disease and returned to action sooner than expected. Furthermore, after surviving cancer, he wrestled at the top-most promotion itself, WCW.
