I don't know what to say. This is extremely upsetting news. Apparently he died of a heart attack. He was only 61. I don't know why this happened. It's not like he was a person known for juicing like Ultimate Warrior. But now one of the greatest talents in the history of professional wrestling and a cult movie star is gone. x__X

Edit: Apparently, he was recovering from cancer since 2006. Maybe that had something to do with it.

I knew him for his roles in a bunch of B-movies. Some of these movies were average, some were good (especially the classic sci-fi flick They Live).

Just learned he was actually a pro wrestler. laugh.gif

Still sucks, though.

They Live isn't a b-movie. That was an a-movie directed by John Carpenter. It just has b-movie elements to it.

You must really have low wrestling knowledge if you didn't know he was a wrestler. lol Possibly the greatest heel of all time. I mean he fucking sold Wrestlemania I for crying out loud.

That's how I meant it.

I didn't watched and still don't watch wrestling or even care about it. Never been my stuff... Except for Hulk Hogan and few other celeb ones (mainly, those who had a public life outside the ring), I don't know a lot of wrestlers.
