Known for fiery tatoos on his head and being unusually agile for a large wrestler, Bam Bam Bigelow died this morning in his home of undisclosed or unknown causes.

He wrestled for WCW and the WWF, among many other regional promotions and international promotions during his career spanning from the late-1980s through the 1990s.

He was diagnosed as a diabetic toward the end of his WCW run in the late '90s. He also had a reptuation for heavy partying in his wrestling days. He was released from the WWF for his "out of control" partying in the late '80s, and he wrestled in Japan afterward before returning to the U.S. for semi-successful stints.

He was in a serious motorcycle accident last year.

He was 45 when he died.

He had diabetes and had problems related to such for some years. Damn shame. I was always a fan, whether it was ECW or The Triad with DDP & Kanyon.

A lot of chickens lead good lives and then one day, BANG, their heads are chopped off and they become food.

What's one got to do with the other?

This "kid" has been following the business for over 25 years but more importantly I studied health sciences at uni and understand how diabetes can lead to death. Calling yourself "therock" doesn't make you better informed on the business, it just makes you a mark.
