  • I hate to speculate on anything but for this kid to die at the tender age of 25 it’s either drug related or someone had a vendetta against the kid. I am still in shock.
    I remember that segment on nitro very well! He showed us that night that would indeed become a pro wrestler one day. I was so excited for him because he seemed different from his brother David. My condolences to Ric and his entire family and speaking as a father myself, it’s horrible that Ric is gonna have to bury his youngest son. So sad!
