Mike Awesome Dead

Recommended Posts

Mike Alfonso, better known as Mike Awesome, was found dead on Saturday morning in the Tampa area according to those close to the family. He was 41.More details should be forthcoming today.Mike Awesome was one of the top foreign stars in FMW in Japan, who as a high-flying big man was made ECW champion on two occasions in 1999 and 2000. As champion, he signed with WCW, creating a situation that many feel ended up killing the title as Tazz from WWF was brought back to ECW to win the title, yet at the same time the title was jobbed in WWF.He worked for a few months with WWF after the collapse of WCW, as well as with All Japan, but had not wrestled in some time.

from the Observer.Well, RIP big fella. You had the best mullet in the westen wrestling world.

Hopefully it's not true. His matches with Spike Dudley & Masato Tanaka were very entertaining. Shame Russo got hold of him in WCW.With the age so many wrestlers are dying, are they considered an OAP in Pro Wrestling terms if they reach 45?

I don't want Awesome gone. I'm still living in the belief he'll come back to ECW with Paul Heyman to save it as being only one of the few people who could with Tanaka.I don't care if it's 2007 Tanaka/Awesome would outdraw Lashley/Test any day of the week.
