Joey Styles called it a year and a half previously, during the One Night Stand PPV when he said "Mike Awesome with the suicide dive there. It's a pity he didn't succeed in taking his own life!" Arsehole that Styles is.

One third of WCW wrestling faction The Jersey Triad, Scott "Bam Bam" Bigelow 8 years ago



2007 was a bad year in deaths for me, lots of people I liked died. And it seems like many wrestlers died. Mike Awesome was another one, I didn't like that news.


There was also that one other wrestler whose name I can't quite remember, it's almost as if he's been erased from history or something...

Whoops. Forgot to point out, on 1st January 1995 they found multi-murdering uber-weirdo Fred West dead in his prison cell, after hanging himself.

Worth pointing out 4 days late I think. Was anyone else faintly hoping Sutcliffe would do a "20th anniversary special" on himself?

Influential comic book artist Will Eisner died 10 years ago today at age 87.

Oh, I remember how I and others used to troll all the comic book nerds we knew (both real and online), about that!

"Will Eisner died LOL!"
"How's the legendary Will Eisner doing? Coming to any conventions soon?"

It was fun revenge cos I most of those nerds are/were the exact same kind of people who would have made Senna jokes the day after he died (even though I was too young to enjoy F1 or know how good Senna was at the time of his death). Well the British ones are/were anyway.
