Not the most eloquent message, but apparently Vampiro revealed that he has Alzheimer's in a Facebook post.  I rather enjoy his commentary on Lucha Underground.

"Got some results from the doctor yesterday 
Not the best of news
But in my heart I know it’s a fight I am gonna win
I am not worried about anything
I am worried about how I can give more back to everyone who needs support
I Don’t give a fuck about being sick , as me and my doctors have a plan! And I will be fine!
Alzheimer’s is bullshit. I am scared about potential Parkinson’s disease because it might fuck up my PlayStation time
I have been beaten up for so long , this is an easy one
Also
Look at the news of the world
So much
Bullshit going down
Just do what’s right and be cool to everyone
Don’t get involved in the stupid shit
Not worth it
Be safe y’all and talk soon"

Good lord. I had to google him as I didn't think he was that old and he isn't.  51? Yikes.  Best wishes to him.

He has taken a ton of unprotected headshots and had many concussions that likely went untreated and some undiagnosed. Does that play any role in Alzheimer's and is he potentially having memory loss due to CTE that has been misdiagnosed or at least misattributed? Regardless, it is a bad hand to be dealt.

On a complete aside, look at his Wikipedia entry and the profile picture which is listed as being from 2015. Two things jump out. One, between the passage of 15 years since he left WCW and the lack of face paint, he looks remarkably older. Two, facially he has an eerie resemblance to Jerry Lawler.

At least he has his priorities in order.
