    Tragic story. I wonder if the speed the weight loss was occurring at was placing his body under undue stress. While it’s not good to be his size, crash dieting would probably have been a lot worse than gradual reduction.

      it’s sad that this man died but I bet the “wrestling reporters” are pissed that they can’t “blame” vince McMahon and wwe for viscera’s death.
      wwe actually fired viscera in 2008 because he was unable to get his weight under control and he was a “health risk” for the company to the point that he could no longer perform in the ring under the wellness policy guidelines.

    TMZ sure is quick to report on anything negative about the wrestling business. The death of any performer, no matter if it is a natural death or if something suspicious was to cause, seems to make their day. Which is quite disgusting IMO. They’ve taken the place of shady attorneys and have become the present day version of an ambulance chaser. Reporting on negative things that have happened to current or ex-performers is their way trashing the wrestling business and continuing the bad reputation that it has. Anytime an ex-wrestler dies it’s all over the news. No matter if their death had anything to do with their time as a wrestler or not. The media reports on it and tries to make it seem like the wrestling business is at fault. That doesn’t happen with any other sport or form of entertainment, and it really isn’t right. If an actor dies, which plenty of them have also died young, the media sure doesn’t ever seem to blame the entertainment industry for the death. I just don’t think that’s right.
