I can understand why Waltman would be despondent. Hepatitis C isn't present in saliva or reproductive fluids, so he could theoretically lead a happy, normal life as long as his liver holds out (problem #1: lifestyle) and he doesn't bleed into anyone's open cuts (problem #2: that's all he knows how to do for a living). In other words, he could live fifty more years, but he'll never take part in a wrestling match again. And I have to wonder about Joanie, because nobody's going to tell me they didn't shoot up together with unsterile needles a thousand different times. For her sake, I hope he got it after they broke up.
