from Meltzer:



    Steve Doll, best known as part of the tag team of the Southern Rockers, passed away earlier today at the age of 44.

    Little details are available, although he had a major health scare a few years ago, and was taken off life support systems today.

    Doll & Scott Peterson were the most popular tag team in the Pacific Northwest promotion of the 80s. Later, Rex King (Mark Smith) replaced Peterson on the team. Doll & Smith were used as a prelim tag team in the WWF in 1993 under the name Well Dunn. Smith wrestled as Timothy Well and Doll s Steven Dunn.

    With King, they held the USWA tag team titles five times and the Northwest tag team titles four times.

A few years ago (2003 or so), I got an angry email from Steve Doll:

I was baffled. I'd actually liked Well Dunn, and I didn't know his other work, and had no idea when I would have said anything bad about him.

Then I figured it out - my personal website at the time was called "my boring website" (well, it was) and my so my wrestling tapelist was called "my boring tapelist." I'm guessing he Googled his own name and saw it on my tapelist. I wrote him back and we cleared things up. He wrote me back a few times:

    sorry for being thin skinned,.i feel like no one cares about what.i love and what i was fortunate to be part of,and even more proud that i was ever accepted.i guess what i'm saying is times change.what so many consider so great today, is great chorography,but not so much a great worker. i love the fact that i was taught the real business of how to think and how to work.i just wish someone appreciate some one going out and having the mind and the ring savvy of entertaining the people by know how and not just jumping off a balcony or what might come next. i know i am old and outdated,but the reason i ever wanted to lace up a pair of boots,was not just by being the main event,but thinking i might have chance of being one of those under card guys and being part of what i loved.if i had never done more than ever be in the dressing room,and even doing the biggest of jobs,which i did,i would die a happy man..what today, by everyone's standards,was not considered great.but to grow up and live your dream and pay your dues.you can never ask for anything more.i am one of the fortunate few in this world,to,if even for a minute,live their dream.

Doll was in WCW in 1996-7, usually appearing on Saturday Night. He made a grand total of one appearance on WCW Monday Nitro - on 5/27/1996, his match against The Mauler (Mike Enos) went to no decision after some guy looking a lot like Razor Ramon came out through the crowd, interrupting the match, and started talking about taking over.

YouTubery: You don't get that, but you DO get:

I don't remember any PPV's with no rating before, it mainly goes up to TV-MA as far as I know. IF that's truly the case, then.... Well, at least I don't have to pay for it this month...
