There is finally a positive update to Kamala's health

What's the story?

It was revealed by Kamala's stepdaughter earlier this week that the former WWE star had been put on life support after being forced to undergo emergency surgery. The most recent update from PW Insider on Kamala's condition states that the WWE legend has been taken off life support.

In case you didn't know...

Kamala was a star in WWE back in the 1990s and is still remembered as the first superstar to lose to The Undertaker in a Casket Match back at Survivor Series 1992.

Kamala's career never reached the heights of many stars at that time, but he was a popular superstar with the WWE Universe.

He was diagnosed with Diabetes back in 1992 and it seems that this illness led to a number of complications to his health in the years that followed. Kamala was forced to have both of his legs amputated a few years later and it was then reported that his health has been declining recently.

Kamala's stepdaughter Juanita James provided updates on her Facebook page after it was revealed that the 67-year-old had been hospitalised earlier this week and forced to undergo emergency surgery due to more complications with diabetes.

The heart of the matter

Mike Johnson of PWInsider is now reporting that "The Ugandan Giant" was taken off life support earlier today and his condition has continued to improve since.

"Harris has been awake and alert enough to understand his family and doctors as he has been weaned off the medication he was on post-surgery, but has not been able to talk as there is still a tube in his mouth to assist him medically. It is still going to be a long road ahead but today's events as a big step in the right direction."

It seems that Kamala has once again defied the odds that doctors gave him a few days ago, as he continues to kick out at two.

What's next?

Hopefully, Kamala's condition will continue to improve over the next few days so that he is once again able to talk and return home to his family when he is considered to be strong enough.


Authors take

Kamala had a memorable WWE run, and it is quite surprising that he has not been inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame.

The WWE Universe once again supported the former star through this latest health problem, which shows just how popular the former star still is. This is great news for Kamala's family and friends; hopefully, this good news is a sign of things to come.
