      Gotta agree with Ultimate Diarrhea. There’s no room for women beaters in this world. Sure they don’t deserve the death penalty but if they wanna off themselves who cares?

    Too Bad. Remember him fighting in Pride. I remember him knocking out Shungo Oyama in like 30 seconds, it was awesome. Always sad to see someone pass so early.

    Talk about a career gone wrong, i used to be a pro wrestling fan and when he got into WCW he was that amazing, never understood why it did not work out with WWE, he had a half decent run in K1 and MMA, but last news i got from him he was a hairdresser or something stupid like that. If its true he was a women beater then he is a jerk. But in pro wrestling he did sick moves for a guy that was 6 foot 6

    He only hit your mum cause her rates went up.

    But seriously the guy felt s— and took his own life and just because your fingertips don’t have emotions it doesn’t mean you should just let them talk s— have some respect for a man who did something with his life, instead of just acting lile the bitter virgin troll that you are.
