Former WWE superstar Rico Constantino is said to be in poor health, according to a post from Kenny Bolin on his Facebook page. Bolin is a good friend of Constantino’s from their time together in Ohio Valley Wrestling before Rico joined the WWE main roster.
“It saddens me to inform you that I have just found out that a former WWE star and very dear friend of mine named Rico Constantino (Rico The Stylist) is very, very sick and has been since at least early January. He has no help financially at all, no disability help and none in sight. He has not spoke a word to hardly any one in like 9 months, he desperately needs our help. He also has severe diagnosed concussions, a collapsed lung and severe heart problems, way too detailed to get into here.
I spoke to his ex-wife at length last night and she is trying to take care of him as best as she can. I am hoping we can set up a GoFundMe account to assist him as soon as his ex can get me the banking info to have it sent to. I also hope the WWE and Vince McMahon, Stephanie McMahon or Hunter will chime in and help this great and very nice man who gave his life to helping others until here recently. Let’s get the word out about Rico’s illness to those who may be able to help him in this extreme time of need.
As I get more info from his ex Linda, I will past it on. I will be contacting a few of my former and current WWE stars to rattle some cages in the hope of getting Rico some financial help. His illness was not caused by drug abuse, as in the case of may others who got help and his severe concussions were acquired entertaining all of us over the years. Linda says that he can say something in one hour and totally forget that he said it 2 hours later. I do hope we can all band together and give just a little that may up in the end, being a lot and a life saver for Rico.
He needs our help, he deserves our help. Those of us who loved him and were entertained by him, he is one year younger than me [Editor’s Note: Rico Is 54 Years Old and will turn 55 on October 1st] and looked 20 years younger. Linda says that we would not recognize him now. Please help me help him and rattle a few cages. Thank you all very much.”
On behalf of everyone associated with Wrestling-News.Net, we would like to send our best wishes to Constantino and his family.
