All area's of entertainment have their more than their share of deaths. Check out Hollywood even as the silent era was coming to a close, many who didn't have the chops for "talkies" offed themselves. We had a 20 year period where a ton of huge music stars bit it Jim Croche, Patsy Cline, Janis Joplin, Hendrix, Morrison, Elvis, Otis Redding, Buddy Holly, Richie Valens, Big Bopper,


Here are some examples from sports and music

"The British Bulldog" Davey Boy Smith - dead at 39, steroid cocktails, HGH

Bullshiat. He died of a staph infection that he got when he was backdropped on a trap door used during the stupid One Warrior Nation angle in WCW.


Actually, he did die of a heart attack, and the autopsy revealed that anabolic steroids may have played a part, although the exact cause was not found. To top it off, he died while vacationing with his ex-brother-in-law's (Bruce Hart) estranged wife.

And as noted earlier, the "allegedly" regarding Earthquake's passing was distasteful. The man fought a two-year battle against cancer, a fight that he had chronicled online.


He died of a staph infection. My source? His own son, Harry. Harry worked TNA back when it was still in Nashville, and back while I was working. Nearly that entire article was bullshiattery.

Dammit, why couldn't it have been the Ultimate Warrior who died instead of Savage? :-(

Well, someone oughtta tell whoever did his autopsy then, because they say heart attack. Given that the staph infection occurred years before he passed, I'm more inclined to believe someone with a medical degree than a family member (let alone a member brought up in wrestling, where bullshiattery is a fine art) trying to put a spin on things.

Not trying to be dickish, but that's how I see it.

On a more positive note, Kong is pregnant and is going on the shelf.
