Recently, former WWE wrestler, Manu, revealed the truth about his rumored ‘bad’ health, on social media. Several rumors were spreading via social media that he is suffering from certain health issues and maybe on his ‘deathbed’.

The rumors begin to flow, when Manu posted some cryptic messages on Facebook, about being very sick and making frequent trips to a doctor near his home in Pennsylvania. Last week, he posted, "Fighting a losing battle! ?#?KeepMeInPrayers." The next day he wrote,  "Eventually I'll stop getting sick ?#?PukedAllWeek? ?#?IbetterLoseSomeWeightAfterAllThis? ?#?SaveMe? ?#?BringMeFluids? lol." 
As reported by, Manu clarified about such rumors by posting this video :

Manu, whose real name is Afa Anoa’i Jr., is of Samoan lineage and is related to the Rock, Roman Reigns, Usos and many more. In November 2007, he made his main roster debut in WWE.

In his WWE tenure, he mainly worked in tag team matches. The original Legacy stable consisted of Manu, along with Cody Rhodes and Sim Snuka. Later on, Sim and Manu were kicked out and replaced by Ted Dibiase Jr.

He was released from his WWE contract in 2009. The main reason behind the release had “a lot to do with his backstage attitude". Anoa'i Jr. continues to wrestle in independent shows regularly since his release from WWE.
