    So very tragic. May his family find the peace they need in this very sad time.

    Richard, let me start of by letting you know that I may not always agree with you, but I respect your opinion. In this case I do not think this was something that needed to be stated. It is different when a negative is reported in the local press or by a rag sheet, but you have always held your site to a higher standard. Although I have not talked with Mike in several years, I was saddened by his passing. His family always treated me with respect and invited me into their lives. His dad and son both suffered the same fate and now it seems that Mike has succumbed to the same disturbance. The pain he felt when is dad committed suicide and then followed by his son doing the same, was unbelievable for him. As a father, I cannot imagine what he went through and to have it happen twice had to be an enormous amount of pain that few of us will ever experience, I pray. Reporting that he was under the influence adds nothing to the story from a wrestling standpoint. Talking about his in ring abilities, his charity work, the dumb mistakes he made learning the business or whatever, that can be fair game. But once a performer steps out of the arena into his private life, that is a step that, in my humble opinion, should not be taken by a legitimate business person like yourself. I am sorry if this offends anyone, but there are things that should not be for public amusement and this is one of them. I have respected the standard you have held yourself and your site to, but in this case you stepped across the line and acted like a tmz or rag sheet on this story.
