    Sad and all, but "Rockin' Rebel"?

    I guess I'm not the ECW fan I thought I was, because I've never once heard of that guy.

    Actuaries probably have a table for former ECW wrestlers with a 90% chance of death before 45.

    I started watching the ECW TV shows from 1993 last year to fall asleep to. He was on a lot of the shows, but I literally knew nothing else of him until today. Damn shame. Blue Meanie tweeted his condolences, but only mentioned the wife's name. Seems suggestive of something.

    Ah, fans of real scumbags remember this guy. No talent and a mess of f-bomb promos.

    His real claim to fame was holding the promoter's license for pro wrestling in Pennsylvania. He'd rent it out in exchange for a place on the card. If he didn't get paid upfront, he'd yank the license and have the show shut down.

    ECW in this case refers to Eastern Championship Wrestling. He was done before they went Extreme.

    Time to start erasing mentions of him from the Network, should take all of 10 seconds

    That's a great point.

    Where was Kevin Sullivan at the time of these murders?

    Heh heh... I was more inferring that I didn't want to presume that the man did it, despite my inkling that it was him and not her
