within two weeks of each other.

As reported several days ago, both Todd Grisham and Matt Striker had deaths in their families that kept them off two separate WWE broadcasts. We can now confirm that both men lost their fathers tragically, and completely coincidentally.

In the case of Todd Grisham, his father was apparently riding his bike when he was hit by a drunk driver and killed. The driver of the car has since been arrested.

Matt Striker's father was reportedly eating a peach when the pit suddenly went down the wrong pipe causing him to choke. He was then hospitalized where doctors surprisingly discovered a totally unrelated aneurysm. They performed a surgery that reportedly went well, however shortly after Striker's father went into a coma that he had been in for several weeks while Matt continued to call ECW broadcasts. His father then passed away last weekend.

Wrestlezone would like to offer our deepest condolences to the families of both Grisham and Striker.

How horrible, and then to go right back to work. Well, at least they have something in common now.

Man that just sucks all around.

Striker and Grisham are actually my favorite announcing duo of the three shows. Perhaps its because there is more wrestling and they don't have to oversell too many angles.

That just sucks for them though.

My ex lost her dad like Grisham did a few years ago. It's hard enough to lose a relative but to lose them like THAT because of someone's idiocy has to be rough as hell. My condolences to both.
