— As noted earlier here on the website, former WWE Superstar “Ugandan Giant” Kamala will undergo foot amputation surgery on Thursday, his son announced Tuesday on Facebook. It will be the the legendary grappler’s third amputation in recent months. He had his left foot amputated last November due to complications of high blood pressure and diabetes. The upper part of the leg was then removed in December. He addressed the matter in February, writing on Facebook, “I wish I could still be in the ring but deep down I know my time is up. Nowadays having only one leg it’s obvious. There is no turning back the hands of times. Thanks to all of you that write me and keeping me in your prayers. Right now my heart is broken but in time I know it will heal. I wish I had the skill to do something else but I dont know what it would be.” Those interested in making a donation to assist Kamala’s medical bills can do so by contacting Kamala Jr. at [email protected]

The former Idol Stevens previously held the FCW 15 Title and the FCW Tag Team Titles with Titus O’Neil.
