Omos is not currently one of the best professional wrestlers in the world, but he does share a medical condition with another WWE legend known as Andre The Giant. Andre The Giant was quite a sensation back in the early day of WrestleMania and the WWE.
Andre was an extremely large wrestler and his rivalry with Hulk Hogan was extremely well rated. However, Andre suffered from a few medical conditions that shortened his life span at the same time, giving him his massive size.
Omos Talks Speaks About the Brain Tumor That He Had
Omos appeared on ‘Say Less With Kaz, Lowkey and Rosy’ to talk about his medical condition. "So, during my freshman year I did all the physicals and nothing came up," Omos said.
"I still had an enlarged heart, but I'm a big guy. So, they're like, 'Alright.' Redshirt year, we're playing Cincinnati. Won the game, overtime. That Monday, my head coach Stan Heath gets an email from the president of the university.
So, this email was sent from a medical doctor to the president and my head coach was cc'd, so he was the third person on the email." Dr. David Vesely spoke to Omos and told him that he may have a serious medical condition and will require medical attention.
"'Based on his features, how big his hands are, how much his stature is, I think he has a pituitary tumor.' " Dr. Vesely said. And MRI scan was conducted on Omos’ brain. The scan revealed that Omos does have a brain tumor.
According to the results, if the tumor hadn’t been taken out, he would have either gone blind, suffered a heart attack, or could have simply died. Brain tumors can also cause various other problems that can eventually lead to severe health issues.
"I have pretty much the same thing that Andre The Giant had, but mine is a little bit different than his because he had acromegaly, which is what this is called," Omos said. "Me, I have acromegaly and I have gigantism and I have partial Cushing's disease.
So, I have a mixture of all three." Omos still appears to be healthy and can perform in the ring without any problem. However, Omos still has a long way to go before he becomes a top draw in the world of professional wrestling.
