Sad to see he passed, but honestly, he had been looking rough for years now and has a well known substance abuse problem. Shame that one half of my favorite ECW tag teams has passed.

The idea Perry Saturn returning to my television screen just got another set back.

I wonder if FOX News is gonna blame THIS one on the WWE as well?

This is sad news. It's also creepy for me, as I was watching 24/7 a few days ago, and the Eliminators were on the ECW show early on in their careers. It popped into my head that I was surprised a tag team from the 90s has 2 members that are both still alive.

I don't think he ever worked for Vince, so I can buy the "not on our watch" excuse here.

RIP

I saw him in a few house shows and really liked watching him wrestle Taz and Shane Douglas. Every once in a while when he was getting the better of his opponent, he would blurt out, "Woo-hoo-hoo-hoo-hoo!" and a lot of the crowd would repeat it.

I enjoyed watching him as part of the Eliminators and the Gangstanotors. Very sad.

If they wanted a specious link between Kronus and WWE just to make the news seem tidier, ECW was bankrolled in part by WWE and the Eliminators did appear on a couple Raws in 1997.

Comparing ECW deaths to WWE deaths is definitely a case where the ECW locker room was always much more, let's say, problematic than WWE's, and it's not a coincidence that it suited people like Louie Spicolli, Chris Candido, and Tammy Sytch well after they left the WWF. But really, it's never been about picking and choosing which deaths WWE should and shouldn't be blamed for.

Go to the Wrestlecrap forums. Earthquake himself logs in and talks about his illness.
