Minor news items that don't deserve a thread

Recommended Posts

This is so minor it shouldn't even belong here, but I'm just putting this here because the two images used tickle me. Good ol' Flatliner.

They said he's 42 though, I thought he was still only 24?

Ha. I went to a mates funeral in Portsmouth back in October and he was there. I remember asking someone at the wake who the Hogan wannabe was. I was told he was¬†‚Äúsome wrestler‚ÄĚ. And then remembered my mate telling me he was mates with ‚Äúsome wrestler‚ÄĚ a few years back.¬†Literally never heard of him.¬†
 

Was he ever a big name in British wrestling or has he always just been some wrestler?

I would describe him as "An ASW style comedy wrestler with limited ability, that looks OK on posters ".

I challenge anyone to come up with a more diplomatic description.

In the early '00s he seemed to be the go-to if any panel show or comedy sketch needed a wrestler, that's about it.

That photo of him looking at the knife on his table, as though he's confused not only as to why the police won't take it, but what he's supposed to do with it is local newspaper comedy gold.

Justice Pain has died. Known for his stint in CZW, being buried by CM Punk in a shoot interview, being the brother of Nick Gage and not much else really. 

An obituary worthy of Lance Storm, that. RIP.

Goddamn, must have only been in his mid to late 30s. Amazing that he was the one to go first and not Gage.

41 he was. Sad news, i was all over that early 00's CZW-era and Justice Pain was a massive part of that. Only ever thing i see about him these days though is when the clip of Necro Butcher punching fuck out of him during Cage of Death gets shared about from time to time.
