James Gore, who is the man behind Facebook’s very popular “Respect Thy Wrestling Forefathers” group) contacted me today to tell me that our mutual dear friend Aaron “Nigerian Nightmare” Gainey was in the hospital. He told me that several weeks ago Aaron fell into a coma and had come out of it just a few days ago. When James told me he was going to see Aaron today, and I found that the hospital was only minutes from my home, I went to see my friend.

I arrived at Abington (Pennsylvania) Memorial Hospital and upon entering Aaron’s room was greeted with a huge smile and then tears. He was very surprised to see me. We spoke for a few minutes as he told me about his terrifying health issue and the horror of sinking into a coma. He had been admitted a few weeks ago with a boil on one of his legs, and some complications from Diabetes. From there he fell into the coma.

His memory seems unscathed and his main issues now are that he cannot walk and has some serious psychological issues brought on by the coma.

If you would like to send a get well card, the address is:
Mr. Aaron Gainey (Patient)
Abington Memorial Hospital
1200 Old York Road
Abington, PA 19001
