AEW Star Reveals He Nearly Took His Life In December 2019

AEW Star Anthony Ogogo, who signed with the promotion in October of 2019, recently had a conversation with The Independent and revealed that he was suicidal in December of 2019 and he nearly took his own life and if it was not for his wife, then he probably would have ended his life on that night, but he and his wife were able to talk about his life and she literally saved his life.

This is what Anthony Ogogo said:

“I was generally suicidal and there’s one night in my life, it was December 2019, if my wife wasn’t home that day, I probably would have ended my life that night because I was beyond the brink but thankfully my wife and I were able to address my life.”

“She literally saved my life – that was my ground zero and I’ve built up from that.”

Anthony Ogogo also talked about how he gave his life for boxing and at the end of the day there isn’t one single thing to show for it because after suffering a fractured eye socket he lost his career, he lost his passion and he lost his livelihood.

This is what Anthony Ogogo said:

“I gave my life to boxing and I had nothing to show for it other than bad vision; no money, no belts, and no titles.” “I lost my career, I lost my passion, lost my livelihood and I’ve had to sit and watch people who have half of my ability grow and become world champions and multimillionaires.”

Ogogo made his AEW in-ring debut on the April 14, 2021 episode of AEW Dynamite, when he defeated Cole Karter in Singles action. Prior to being sidelined since undergoing eye surgery this past June, Ogogo last competed for AEW on the June 4 episode of Friday Night Dynamite, when he teamed with QT Marshall to defeat Cody Rhodes and Lee Johnson in a Tag Team Match.

Following his surgery and recovery from surgery, Ogogo made his highly-anticipated AEW in-ring return during All Elite Wrestling’s Dark: Elevation tapings from the Gas South Arena in Duluth, Georgia last December, where Ogogo teamed with fellow Factory members QT Marshall, Nick Comoroto and Aaron Solo to battle Baron Black and three enhancement talents in an 8-Man Tag Team Match, which ended with Anthony Ogogo securing the knockout win for his team. Anthony Ogogo, who last competed for AEW on the January 11th episode of Dark, when he defeated Baron Black in Singles action, had his biggest AEW match, when he took on former AEW Star “The American Nightmare” Cody Rhodes at the Double Or Nothing Event in May 2021 in a one-on-one match. All Elite Wrestling recently held television tapings for a future episode of Dark: Elevation, where Ogogo faced Goldy in Singles action, but that match has yet to air.
