"Mr. Wonderful" Paul Orndorff

Ran across this article in the Charlotte Pro Wrestling Examiner by Jerry Wiseman. 

If you haven't heard, "Mr. Wonderful" Paul Orndorff, WWE HOFer and member of the SAW roster is battling skin cancer.  Apparently, while typically very treatable, this skin cancer has attached to an artery and has made certain treatments impossible and all treatments extremely painful.

The man himself said, “this is the most painful thing I have ever been through in my life.”

This, quite literally, hits close to home for me.  Paul Orndorff lives in my hometown.  That man even used to own the local bowling alley.  Once, while at a birthday party there, "Mr. Wonderful" walked by our group, threw up his hand and said, "How're you doing?"  It was the coolest for a kid my age.

I sure hope that Paul can whip this terrible disease.  He was always entertaining and has certainly left a lot behind in that ring as it relates to his health.

After the jump is footage of his most famous/infamous moment....
