Yea, that was an awesome read. Duane is a good guy, has many accomplishments. Seems like a real character. But yea, I was wondering too.... what is his disability??

Sorry guys, I just wanted to interview him without bringing that particular point to the surface, I wanted to interview him in a way others have not. He is a great guy and here is whats wrong.

At 3 years old Duane was diagnosed with tumors in his spine which robbed him of 30% function in his lower body. Duane was very lucky to be alive and suffered paralysis for many years, after eight years old he was able to get around with crutches. Despite this disability, Duane started competing as a teenager and has been a wrestler and martial artist from his early childhood.

Here is a great article on Duane if you would like more
