    There’s got to be better ways to off yourself.

      At least it wasn’t from a drug overdose like most wrestlers do.

      Yeah like have The Undertaker truly Tombstone you to the other side. That’d be pretty cool and very ironic too. I’d have to do that on my birthday.

    This must be the most tasteless and in-human comment ever. I didn’t know Sean O’Haire on a personal level, but he must have gone through a hard and dark time. I’m disgusted by your comment, even if it’s meant to be sarcastic. TGrell5523 I REALLY want to break your face and crush all your teeth for this. SHOW some compassion and respect.
