    Sad news indeed, I remember seeing him run Big Z close on the shoulder press and thinking he'd be a force! RIP!

    Sad news. 31 is way, way too young.

    Sad to see. I was backstage when he won the Arnold. Seemed like a good guy. Real personable and was thanking all of the volunteers on the crew.

    That sucks. Was it a heart attack? I feel bad for his family.

    The vid said he died in his sleep. My first thought for a guy that size of 400lbs, is he probably had sleep apnea and may have just stopped breathing in his sleep. Sleeping meds can make that worse. But who knows, could have been something else
