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.

I have a semi-coherent obit on my blog. It may get better later on.

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.

RIP.

I'd rather he go to Smackdown than back to RAW. That show needs all the help it can get in the character department. Nitro isn't that great in the ring (yet?), but he's got solid mic and acting skills for someone an inexperienced as he is.
