I remember him from a Nintendo game where his primary move was a bitch slap. Also, he had tattoos on his head. That's gotta hurt.


Yeah he was the crappiest wrestler on the Wrestlemania game for NES. The only worse than him was Ted DiBiase, who now wrestles for Jesus.

maybe he feels bad for the way he treated Virgil?

Bam-Bam was cool, i saw him at NWA World War III oh...maybe 5 years ago or so...he wasnt scheduled to be there and he pulled someone out of the ring during the 3 ring battle royale

not sure about Bam-Bam, but i'm guessing alot of these guys die from Roids/other Drug Abuse

Not crying, but I did like Bam Bam, so I am saddened by his passing at an early age. Always seemed like a good guy to me.

RIP Bam Bam. :,-(


On a sidenote, nice to see so many old school wrestling fans in this thread. ;-D

Ahhhh.....the good ol' days. But I remember being disappointed Slick didn't procure his services. Slick....I bet you he isn't alive anymore either.


Slick is still alive he just doesn't associate with wrestling anymore.

As for Bam Bam, it's a sad loss. I'm surprised but we didn't put together a package for him. I always liked that he was a big guy that was able to do a lot of things. He carried Lawrence Taylor in that match way back when, and made it look at least repectable.

Safe passings big guy.

Man, it might be worth trying to compile a list of WWE wrestlers who have died too young in the last decade or so... although there's probably one already on the Web somewhere....


Let's see... I'll start with the ones that jump out at me.

Bam Bam
Rick Rude
Eddie Guererro
Big Boss Man
Owen Hart
Miss Elizabeth
One of the Road Warriors
Brian Pilman
British Bulldog
Curt Henning



geez that's just the ones that jump out at me..... that's too many to have died before their time.
