At the end of July 2022, it became public that Frank Fritz had suffered a stroke and was then taken to a hospital. A friend called 911 on July 14 after finding him on the floor of his Iowa home. Before such details came to light, Mike Wolfe first broke the news in an Instagram post, writing, “Please keep him in your hearts and minds. Frank, I pray more than anything that you get through this okay. I love you mate.” Thankfully, Frank is in stable condition as he prepares to embark on the road to recovery, according to his father, Bill Fritz, in a report by The Sun in early August.
A few weeks after Bill’s news of Frank’s condition, an insider at the Quad-City Times came forward with more information. “He wants everyone to know that he’s getting better every day and is very determined,” she explained, adding, “While Frank was unprepared for his condition to be made public at this point, he’s grateful for everyone prayers and he is well wishes.” With that in mind, it seems that social media could be the catalyst for more arguments between Frank and Wolfe — something the public has seen before during their extended feud (via CinemaBlend).
By the looks of things, it looks like Frank Fritz and Mike Wolfe’s relationship is still in a rough patch. Perhaps one day the “American Pickers” icons will manage to bury the hatchet, but it’s unclear when — or if — that day will come.
