    Yet another wrestling related tradgedy. You have to wonder why stuff like this keeps happening. Mike was always an informative guest on the Legend’s Roundtable discussions. RIP Mike.

      I'm sorry, but it's a tragedy. Full stop. Not a "wrestling related tragedy". A man has sadly killed himself, many do that every week. A man who worked in a bank and killed himself is a tragedy, not a bank related tragedy.
