Grimey Drawer

This is a thread for posting about wrestlers who die during the year.


Rocky Johnson

Best known for being the father of The Rock, Johnson wrestled for over 20 years in the 60s, 70s, 80s, and up to 1991. He held the WWF Tag Team Championship with Tony Atlas in 1983 as "The Soul Patrol." He held titles in 12 different territories per Wikipedia.


Pampero Firpo

Firpo was commonly credited as the oldest living former pro wrestler. Despite being 5'8", he was a well known wildman brawler who inspired Randy Savage with his interview style. He faced Pedro Morales for the WWWF Heavyweight Championship twice and feuded with the Sheik. In an amusing turn of events, after retiring as a wrestler he worked at a post office where he helped mail Dave Meltzer's Wrestling Observer Newsletter in the 90s.

It's not that kind of test.

Stampede Wrestling star Hercules Ayala died earlier this week.



I only know this because my wife works at a funeral home.

He was also huge in WWC. I remember an fire match he had with Carlos Colon being on a cover a magazine.

Fundamentals as sound as the WNBA


Justice Pain passed away. He was the real life brother of Nick Gage and many time CZW World Champion. He was champion when the company really started getting big in 2001-2002, and even managed to win a war with XPW when XPW tried to make the ECW Arena their exclusive home. He wasn't the top star then, but he'd be the champion while Zandig did his big soap opera storylines over control of the company. Him feuding with Messiah was a real big deal at the time because of it. It might seem funny to say that but when ROH was starting out doing 400 fans in the Murphy Rec Center CZW could do 1,000+ in the Arena.

I LOVE SPREADING CONSPIRACY THEORIES ABOUT WOMEN

WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH ME


His match with Punk at ECW Arena in 2002 was, for the time, great - and it's funny to hear both Punk and Pain tried to disown it afterward to Zandig

Zandig sided with Pain, and CM Punk was never invited back to CZW

Well worth tracking down

RIP

Apparently Justice Pain jumped off the Walt Whitman bridge which is incredibly depressing to think about.

I thought the redtext someone dumped on you was in bad taste and a bit much so here's a corgi instead.

Was Surpreme the one who lost a finger in a Rob Black related incident, or was that Messiah? I always confuse my XPW guys

This has already been discussed in the WWE thread, but Randaconda presumably missed that and made their own thread, quoting it for this one since it's better suited to the discussion.

When someone crosses that threshold, no one should ever write it off as a cry for attention. They could literally be gone minutes afterwards, it's a race against the clock. It sounds like people close to her responded immediately but were still too late. It's unfortunate.

I'm just really sad since this week a bunch of folks (including myself indirectly) are being put through some intense coordinated online harassment, being called toxic and awful. It's been going on off/on since 2018

But loving 22 gently caress this world

People like Kairi, Io, and especially poor Jungle Kyona are going to carry "what-ifs" for the rest of their lives.

Edit for context: Kairi and Io both saw the self-harm tweets as they were being posted and immediately started making phone calls. Kairi got a hold of Kyona, who went in person to investigate but did not get there in time.

The outpouring of love from seemingly everyone in the industry just makes it doubly sad because those voices were being drowned out by hate. Never stop telling people how much they mean to you

"I don't know how to direct these feelings of sadness, and I don't know what I can say or how to say it..., but I remember how a young Hana-chan would often visit the arena with her grandma."

https://twitter.com/WWEAsuka/status/1264164668215488514

"Before I moved to the States, for several years, every day I would get mail like 'die,' 'stop destroying joshi,' 'disappear from the industry' directed at me.
And today, it has been "how dare you not make any comment when others have."
It's scary how these people don't understand how these people are one and the same.

For Hana Kimura,

Everyone who supported her,
Befriended her,
Loved her,

I'm sorry for not being able to protect you,
I'm sorry for the sorrow you're feeling,

If you're feeling sad, Hana will feel sad too,
So please keep thoughts of Hana being happy and having fun in your hearts,

I will do my best to be stronger,
So that I can bring what Hana wanted to tell everyone to life


22 is no age to die, and no parent should ever have to bury their child.
