She had been sick before, had been treated and had gone into remission, but it came back.
By a macabre coincidence as some have pointed out on other boards, this is the same day that Jeff's former tag team partner Owen Hart died.
Sort of reminds me of Nikita Koloff back in the 90's be he retired to take care of his wife while she was ill then went into religious preaching and wrestling. Any ways besides the point I was going to make.
That's really heartbreaking to have it be the same day Owen passed away. My thoughts are with Jeff Jarrett at this time because he needs all the support anyone can give right now.

He HAS gotten some American media exposure, but c'mon. Ask the average person, or even the average wrestling fan, who Akebono is. Probably nine times out of ten they won't have any idea who you're talking about.
