The 5 & # 39; & # 39; Prince, who started at around 260 pounds, was called "the thing" because of the muscle he had in his body. His lateral chest posture, highlighted by his huge hamstrings, is one of the greatest ever. But Prince may be better known for another reason. In 2003 he suffered kidney failure, and next year he made another comeback. He admitted that he had ruthlessly consumed drugs at FLEX. He was on dialysis for years. But this story has a happy ending. Prince received a kidney transplant in 2012, and today he and his wife run a successful property management business in Southern California.
