Hector Garza passed away Sunday due to lung cancer (or complications from it.) He's 43.
He'd been a smoker. They found the cancer last fall and it was pretty far along. It's still so quick - he is/was national heavyweight championship and there are current AAA storylines that clearly had been designed with Garza as part of it. It's very sad.

Garza was one of my favorite WCW luchadores in '97/'98 or thereabouts; that corkscrew plancha from the top rope onto the floor (hitting several other wrestlers on the way down) was always a highlight of Nitro, in my opinion.
