Former WWE Superstar James Ellsworth took to Twitter today, revealing that Duane “Gillberg” Gill suffered a heart attack on Wednesday but is out of intensive care and doing okay now. He said,
“Hey everyone, Happy Thanksgiving. I just got off the phone with Duane Gill, also known as Gillberg’s, wife. She wanted me to let everybody know what’s going on with Duane. He had a heart attack yesterday. But he is doing okay, he’s doing good. He just got out of ICU, doing very well, so I just wanted to say that first and foremost. He is doing fine and he should be okay going forward. Hopefully he’ll be home this weekend, and start transitioning into getting back to normal. But his wife did want me to come on here and tell everyone what’s going on. So please send your prayers to Gillberg and his family at this time. And hopefully, he’ll be home soon and back to his normal, fun, goofy self. Take care guys and God bless you. Stay safe.”
Gill worked for WWE in the late ’90s and played the Goldberg parody gimmick. He also had a 15-month reign as Light Heavyweight Champion.
We send our best wishes to Gill and his family.
