Death of a Legend

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on June 14, 2009 by biggman621

Mitsuharu Misawa, a legend of wrestling in Japan, passed away last night during a match for his promotion, Pro Wrestling NOAH. He was being hit with a back drop and was immediately knocked out cold. The referee stopped the match and CPR was administered in the ring.

Misawa will always be looked at as arguably the greatest pro wrestler ever. He turned pro wrestling into an art form while innovating the sport at the same time. I think everyone should see a video of Misawa in action. He was simply amazing.

Below is a video on Youtube showing the actions following the horrific event. It is a 9 minute piece and everyone is visibly shaken. This video contains disturbing and shocking footage of this event. VIEW AT YOUR OWN RISK.

My condolences to his family and all who knew him.

I know this has nothing to do with wrestling, but since he has been such a big part of Philadelphia, I needed to make this known.

Harry Kalas died today in Washington DC. He collapsed in the booth before a Nationals/Phillies game.

Kalas was the voice of the Phillies and one of the most recognizable voices in sports. He will be sorely missed.

R.I.P. Harry Kalas. My condolences to his family and friends.

This just in from wrestlinginc:

Former WWE and TNA superstar Andrew “Test” Martin’s official cause of death was an overdose on pain killers. The pill he was said to have overdosed on Oxycodone also called “hillbilly heroine.”

This is the same drug behind the death of Heath Ledger, another person who was taken too soon.

This came in from wrestlinginc:

Andrew “Test” Martin was found dead in his condo yesterday.  His cause of death is unknown, but an autopsy of the body will be conducted, so we should have a cause in the near future.

Martin was a good wrestler in the WWE and TNA who is best known for his relationship with Stacy Keibler and his tag team with Albert (A-Train).  He will be sorely missed.

My condolenses to the Martin family, former girlfriend Kelly Kelly, and all who knew him.
