Virgil tagged several noted pro-wrestling names in his post

The former WWE star tagged the likes of Tony Khan, Randy Orton, Chris Jericho, Cody Rhodes, and Hulk Hogan in his post. Le Champion is well known for helping fellow wrestlers and legends with money in case of medical emergencies.

The 59-year-old WWE veteran also urged his fans to help him by buying his videogame that's available on iOS and Android. He will also be selling video shoutouts as well as autographs to fans.

Virgil was a popular name in WWE during the late 80s and early 90s. He established himself as a heel during his alliance with "The Million Dollar Man" Ted Dibiase. He later turned babyface by turning on the latter.


His only title win in WWE came when he won the Million Dollar Championship by defeating Dibiase at SummerSlam 1991. He also worked for WCW for a lengthy period and was a member of the nWo for the better part of his stint.

The Sportskeeda community wishes Virgil the very best and prays for a full recovery.
