Since March, the United States has been dealing with the COVID-19 pandemic and unfortunately, the virus hit close to home for Konnan.
Dave Meltzer, who is friends with the pro wrestling veteran, noted on the latest episode of Wrestling Observer Radio that Konnan lost his mother a few weeks ago in Florida due to issues related to COVID-19.
Meltzer was talking about how Lana’s mother was in the ICU after testing positive for the virus when he shared the news. Meltzer recalled how Konnan told him about the loss during a recent conversation.
Apparently, Konnan didn’t reveal the news of his mother’s passing to many people aside from his inner circle as he has yet to comment on the loss of his mother. Thus, the news is now just getting out.
In addition to hosting his podcast, he has been working for promotions like Major League Wrestling, Impact Wrestling, and AAA in recent years.
From all of us here at WrestlingNews.co, we send our thoughts and prayers to Konnan and his family at this difficult time.
