    it’s always a sad story to hear a wrestler that died before the age of 50. but he was in bad shape for a while and plus, according to another wrestling news site, he posted a tweet this morning hours before he was found dead that sounded like a farewell tweet.

    my thoughts, prayers and condolences goes out to his fans, his friends, family and anyone else who knew him.
