Whatever happened to these Wrestlers (Who else has died recentley)?

I stopped watching WWE when the screwed up that invasion angle back when WCW and ECW were purchased by them. Their stroy lines really sucked and I truly cant bear watching wrestling no more. Last one I saw were the 2 Eddie Guerrero eps.

But I still play an old N64 wrestling game because the multiplayer is great with other people and I was wondering what happened to some of my old faves. Where have they gone, are they still wrestling, or passed away like so many others?

Some of my faves were ECW guys like:

Mike Awesome
Jerry Lynn
Crowbar (WCW - came out with that Daphne chick)
Steve Corino
Sabu
Sandman
New Jack
Spike Dudley

Those come to mind right away. Im sure more will hit later.

Damn, so alot of these guys are on TNA? Do they show that on TV. Hows their story lines? Too bad alot of these guys are just doing one off shows.

I had NO idea Boss Man, and Candido died, What did they die off? To make sure, Candido was the blonde guy married to that chick that was called Sunny right?

Speaking of New Jack, I just watched Jim Cornette's Shoot Interview from 2000 and him ripping into Jack is hilarious. I love how he's got his mugshots in a display case in his wrestling room. Awesome.

tna's on spike tv at 11 pm on sat nights and in april moving to primetime at 9 on thursdays.
wrestling there is top notch (especially the x division), storylines are decent, but at least you won't get Vince pulling his pants down on live tv and making another wrestler kiss his ass.

I read somewhere Johnny Grundge from Public Enemy passed not too long ago. It might have been from the effects of sleep apnia

Spike is doing the indy scene under his real name, Matt Hyson. He's also doing an autograph appearance here in Michigan at the Gibraltar Trade Center in Taylor on March 25th. He also has a website, MattHyson.com

Sabu was in TNA, but I believe he hasn't been on TV for a while.

New Jack is on the indy scene as well, but after hearing him admit to purposefully butchering that kid in the infamous ECW "Mass Transit" incident, that bastard should never be in a ring again.

Steve Corino and Sandman both did local indy shows around six months ago. Corino spends most of his time in Japan, Sandman only does indy shows for a few promoters.

well, also, you can also say the kid kind of got what he deserved, if you listen to the "forever hardcore" documentary, the kid lied about his age, and told the wrestlers what moves he wanted done, and he also mentioned that the kid wanted to bleed. from all acounts ive heard, he flinched as new jack cut him, hence the tremendous blood loss.
and if anyone has this match, can they email it out?

You can find it on most P2P file-sharing sites. I've heard the story many times and while New Jack's a piece of garbage, the kid set himself up.

With the upcoming ECW PPV in June, i'm sure you'll see some of these guys back for a night.
