    Wow. 43 is NOT old, not even close. To be found in bed, not breathing, without a preexisiting health condition...it's not unreasonable to raise the question of steroids already.

    Rest in piece too. I remembered him fondly for his Demolition days...my goodness, I really miss the '80s to early '90s...the wrestling was so fun and full of cheese in those days.

    RIP Crush.

    I miss those day of wrestling, the wacky days.


    All these guys should ask the Hulk Hogans and Macho Mans how they do it, too many of these guys are dieing to young.

    WTF? Brian Adams, too?

    I never liked him as an addition to Demolition... I thought it killed the team, and I hated his solo "Kona Crush" character (and the best-forgotten "Demon" until he turned heel and dropped the Hawaiian bit - but he and Bryan Clark tore it up as KroniK.

    I also give him props because he stood up for Bret when McMahon screwed him over and ended up getting fired over it. That was cool that he "went to the mat" for his fellow worker.

    Since he was busted for steroids... I would not be surprised if the cause is related. It is still a shame, though.

    I'm sad for his his family and loved ones, but confess I was never one of his fans. He was the 'Poochy' to Demolition's 'Ax' and 'Smash.'

    Average lifespan for the world, the whole world, is sitting in the high sixties.

    And he was definitely in the part of the world where statistically, his chances to live longer were even better.

    It seems like the mid 40's is starting to become the average lifespan of a prowrestler. And it's probably not going to get any better so long as they're traveling 250+ days a year and taking bumps every other night. I'm amazed at guys like Ric Flair and Hogan who can still do some ring work. Flair has probably taken some harder bumps in his career than Hogan has.

    Without a doubt - and when you add in that he broke his back in 3 places when he was 26, its even more impressive.

    Yeah, Flair amazes me for his age! I'm not saying he took roids but maybe he didn't abuse it as much as the others? I've always get a kick watching him wrestle! :D
