News just broke on wrestlingobserver.com that Joey Maggs passed away today. There's nothing else listed besides this for the moment.

I'm just shocked. Godspeed to his loved ones.




EDIT: Just wanted to add that I'll make further comments later.

I remember his jobbing from early 90's WWF shows. I know he wrestled for WCW, though as their coverage was poor in the UK, his career there is not as familiar to me.

As no cause of death has been mentioned yet, let's hope it wasn't the usual cause of premature deaths in wrestling.

Joey Maggs was a frequent enhancement talent for both the WWF and WCW - more famous than, say, Brian Costello, but less famous than Barry Horowitz.

Totally unnecessary, but you were dying to be the first guy to say it, so congratulations.

Joey Maggs was amongst the many enhancement talent wrestlers that are never really given enough credit. In countless matches on WCW Worldwide, Saturday Night, or The Main Event, Maggs did his job-- making the stars look like stars-- with excellence. And from this fan's standpoint, he never mailed in the effort. IMO, he was as much a fixture in WCW as anyone in the early 1990s, if not necessarily for the same reasons, like being a headliner or a midcard talent.

My brother and I were always fans of Joey Maggs, and even though we knew what the inevitable outcome of the majority his matches was going to be, we rooted for him nonetheless. Why? Because it had nothing to do with whether or not he'd win the bout; Joey Maggs was just cool.



You will not be forgotten.

Pretty sure he will be. Considering only a handful of people probably even knew who the guy was to begin with.

Is every wrestler who dies going to get the "greatest ______ of all time"-, "it's still real to me damnit!" something or other treatment?

With no disrespect towards the deceased, this over-gushing and over exaggerating of SOME wrestlers who pass away or waxing about their importance is the most smarky crap one can ever read.

Joey Maggs, RIP, sure...but let's not get carried away.

I recommend you read my post again. Where AT ALL am I giving Joey Maggs "greatest _________" treatment? If you actually did read my post, which I know you didn't, or didn't with any degree of comprehension, you would probably have taken note of the fact that I am but one fan expressing my feelings toward a wrestler I happened to like a great deal.

But why should I feel the need to justify what I think about Joey Maggs to you or anybody else? And what about my comment saying that he won't be forgotten? Smarky? People like you ought not to throw around the "smark" tag. Pot. Kettle. Black.

Smart guy.

EDIT: grammar.

Joey had a brief run in ECW too as one of the FBI. He went by the name Joey Magliano.

I'll remember him as Jumpin Joey Maggs, always getting squashed on WCW Saturday.

RIP Joey.

First, get over yourself, buddy.

Secondly, I didn't accuse YOU of throwing around "greatest______" whatever to anybody (maybe you should have been paying more attention to MY post, not the other way around.) I said it as a general statement. One in which you applied to your post and no-name wrestler. However, you did say Maggs didn't get enough credit for what he did -- and therein lies the problem which I was bringing up in the first place -- over-gushing for nothing.

When The Gambler and Reno Riggins die (if they haven't already) are we going to wax philosophic about the credit they deserved in doing their jobbing? No -- at least I hope not. I'm glad you enjoyed the guy, hooray, but in terms of importance and/or relevance to wrestling...no.

Finally, I wouldn't be attempting to insult anyone with a "smart guy" comment if I needed to edit my post due to a grammatical error.

Good work, slugger.

Watching WCW back in the day, like in 1992, for instance, I used to mark out for Joey Maggs whenever he put up the good fight against Rick Rude or Arn Anderson. He would get the fans riled up and rallied behind him only to get defeated. But Maggs' in-ring persona, like Sting and Steamboat, represented that true blue good guy, and regardless of whether he jobbed, he still served as a foil to say, any member of the Dangerous Alliance or Cactus Jack's cronies (Barbarian and Tony Atlas) simply because he was a face. Heck, Joey Maggs even won a couple of times, when I think about it.

Again, RIP Joey Maggs. Sorry for the mudslinging, CRZ.
