    Very fitting, I just hope this doesn’t turn out to be like the whole Benoit situation…(not the murder part of it) where they offer tributes, fly the flag at half mast, and then end up having to back up and back down becasue there’s some massive horrible reason for it all….

      No matter. Vince is just glad this is one wrestling death they can’t pin on him

  • Jamie Hawker

    Yet a full time dedicated wrestler like Umaga gets completely shunned.

    • doobie

      Umaga wasn’t full time anywhere when he died, but covered his death anyway.

    • vadertime33

      when have they shunned umaga?? they talked about him and showed him in the donald trump HOF video package!!! he’s on tons of dvds after his death ..

  • Paul Kersey

    Did the flags fly half mast when Paul Bearer died?

    • doobie

      No, but there was two weeks worth of on-air tributes.

    Did the flags fly half mast when Paul Bearer died?

  • Ric Flair

    At the funeral, I’ll be doing the WOOOOOOOOOlogy!!!!

  • Ayatollah of rock N rolla

    Its sad the kid died and all but when he’s giving more respect because of his last name than people who have wrestled for the WWE, its tasteless.

  • Noach

    Am I a jerk for not feeling sorry that he died? He did this to himself. Just say no, kids. You don’t have to start drugs. I’ve been around large groups of people doing hard drugs many times (college) and never had the urge or was pressured into doing them.

    • darkness

      Exactly he did this to himself, if it was a car accident or natural cause I would have had sympathy but when drugs are involved no one to blame but yourself.

    lol at his last tweets. Life is a Mofo

  • Lisa Walton

    Ok first of all the disrespect shown to this young man on this msg thread is ridiculous…..not one of you knew him personally….there were no on air tributes to him wwe lowered a flag……this was a life lost to young regardless of the reason….. Anyone who knew him loved him he had an infectious smile, a contagious laugh, a great sense of humor, he showed a humility that you would never expect from Ric flair’s son and a passion for wrestling…… He adored my children and my children adored him so please I know there are haters everywhere but let’s keep te negativity away and let this family friends and fans mourn in peace……you all talk crap then why even read these articles. Have a little respect for a life lost and a mourning family.

    Also remember you all are assuming the cause of death remember it hasn’t even been determined yet and you know what they say about assumptions
