“How ya doin’ you rascal,” was what I heard when I answered my cellphone. At first I thought it was II’s son Michael, as that is what the caller ID registered. To my amazement it was II himself! What a thrill it was to hear from him just a few days after he had undergone triple-bypass heart surgery.
“I’m out of intensive care and in my own room. Now I call get back in touch. I’m sore all over my body but that’s about it. I’m ready to get out of here!”
II is still in a hospital in Charlotte, North Carolina after suffering a heart attack a few weeks ago during the NWA Legends Fan Fest.
I asked him if he’s ready to get back in the ring with Abdullah The Butcher to which he replied, “give me another week or two!”
Again, he wants to thank everyone for keeping him in your prayers.
