Since Jammen has told me twice to change my signature, I can only assume his wrestling knowledge is no longer something I can count on along with pizza and beer.

Really bummed to hear this news, he was one of my favorite wrestlers to watch while I was in college.  I will never forget watching him leap in the air warming up.

Dang! That's terrible. He was always exciting to watch.

How did he die?  Pneumonia is almost always a complication from something else and the article doesnt give any details

Clearly juicing was a factor in his death.
Christians warned about the Antichrist for years. And when he came, they voted for him.

Hardly (though I think you're being facetious), I wonder about the MRSA he had. I wonder how something like that affects your health long term. Up until recently (late 40's early 50"s) syphilis was a death sentence. I could infect you in your youth,  "lie dormant" and then manifest itself decades later. Might MRSA (really all diseases) have a like long term effect?

Hard to say what the effects are on the heart  after a nasty staph infection.  Until an autopsy comes back, who knows?

My cousins husband caught a staph infection that got into his blood stream.  It caused his lungs to fill up with puss like fluid and the infection entered his heart causing it expand. He was down to 7% pulmonary function.  Doc's said he was days away from suffocating from the fluids before he starting improving.   After he recovered he caught an infection in his foot which spread up his calf.  He ended having the leg sliced off above at the knee. 

It very well could have been a staph infection in the lungs.

Just curious to know how many youths you have infected in that way.
