Another Wrestler Dies

Postby Pacman » Fri Apr 29, 2005 10:49 am

Weird how all these relatively young men who work as professional wrestlers keep dropping dead.

This guy used to be on WWF back in the 90s, he was the blonde guy who's girlfriend/manager was the very hot "Sunny".

Chris Candido has died tonight according to numerous friends of his working in TNA. He was apparently eating dinner at home tonight, collapsed, and was rushed to the hospital. He then did at the hospital. We are still seeking confirmation from the hospital.
Candido, age 33, suffered a freak ankle break on Sunday's TNA PPV in the opening match. He was taken to the hospital and had surgery the next day. He was back at the TNA TV tapings a day later, managing The Naturals in their NWA Tag Team Title win on Tuesday night.

He was said to be nervous Sunday night about his future in wrestling because he had worked so hard to come back from drug addiction to clean up his life. He was relieved to find out that TNA and a number of indy promoters who had him booked all said they would use him and pay him if he could show up in a wheelchair or on crutches.

Candido (real name Chris Candito) wrestled as a member of the Bdoy Donnas tag team with Tom Prichard in the WWF. Before that he worked for Smoky Mountain Wrestling and ECW (where he was managed by his real-life girlfriend Tammy Sytch).

the wresting business probably has one of the highest death rates for men under 50 of all...... very sad they lose another one who was even younger than some that passed away last year.....

i remember the blonde chic, and vaguely Candido. it is sad. if the WWE et al considers itself a professional sport then does congress need to sit Vince McMahon down and talk about steroids? How much influence do you think those beasts have on the hundreds of thousands of viewers/fans under the age of 18? (i would say millions but i lost interest in the WWF/WWE about 5 yrs ago and do not know how popular it is now)

Yet Jake the Snake is still alive. He has to be immortal.

Have any of you seen pictures of Sunny lately?
hard to believe it's the same girl.

My apologies. I have a nephew named Anfernee, and I know how mad he gets when I call him Anthony. Almost as mad as I get when I think about the fact that my sister named him Anfernee.
