Bissonnette revealed that Brock told him how his life transformed after getting diagnosed with Diverticulitis in 2009.

Bissonnette said, “Great Guy. Very, very interesting and he is still going strong. He talked about that because I was like, ‘how are you not banged up and how are you still wrestling at this age?’”

“He said about 13 years ago, he got this trainer, and he just kind of changed his whole life as far as eating habits and the way he trains. I think he says that he could probably wrestle at a high level for another three, four years,” he added.
