A former WWE star best known for his stint in the Attitude Era has revealed that they recently almost died and needed emergency surgery.

Dennis Knight is best known for his portrayal of Mideon in WWE. As Mideon, he was part of The Ministry of Darkness, doing the bidding of The Undertaker along with the likes of Viscera and The Acolytes. Knight had also found tag team success earlier in his career as Phineas I. Godwinn, one-half of The Godwinns.

Ex-WWE Star Grateful To Still Be Alive

Writing on social media, Dennis Knight detailed the recent medical emergency that forced him to undergo surgery:

“Hi my name Is Dennis Knight and this week I almost died! Spent 8 days in the hospital and 48 hours in ICU…with everything I’ve done in my life I would have thought car accident, OD or some other result of my lifestyle! But no, my body tried to kill me! I don’t like to talk about my personal life but thx I don’t need anything. I have the greatest family who takes care of me!

Started with stomach pain that was supposed to be bowel obstruction, then went into surgery and found a shredded appendix a hernia and a golfball-size blade stone that tore my entire stomach up which is weird because I had gallbalder removal years ago! My blood sugar should be 90 to 120 mine was over 700.

The reason for this is to tell your family and God you love them because It might be the last! I love you all and want you to be happy so take care of yourself and after the worst week of my life I am grateful to still be here and I love you all..thank you for your time.”

Knight’s last televised match in WWE came at No Mercy in 2000 when William Regal defeated the star then known as Naked Mideon – it’s exactly what you think – to retain the European Championship.

Knight’s former leader in The Ministry of Darkness, The Undertaker recently named his favourite match of his legendary career.

Everyone at TJR Wrestling wishes Dennis Knight a full and speedy recovery.
