Update on Killer Kowalski’s condition; Report of his death false

In an effort to minimize inaccurate reports about Walter "Killer" Kowalski, his wife has asked us to send a brief update:

Initial reports by Georgiann Makropolous were correct in that Walter did, in fact, have a heart attack late on Friday. At the time, he was revived, placed on life-support and transferred from the nursing facility to an area hospital. Friday night and Saturday were critical for Walter. As of Saturday evening, Walter was more responsive to those around him, including some visitors from the wrestling industry. He is still being assisted by medical equipment but certain vital signs have improved slightly. The medical staff is hoping that he will continue to stabilize.

Walter is still in serious condition and we can all only hope for continued improvement. His wife believes that his slight improvement is due to the thoughts and prayers that he has been receiving from around the world. She asks that everyone continue to pray for Walter.

As always, messages can be sent to Walter through his school: or through the mailing address on the site.

Again, we ask that everyone think of Walter during this difficult time and resist the spread of inaccurate information and reports.

Thank you,
