Default Mike Awesome has passed away

Source: nodq.com

Mike Alfonso, better known as Mike Awesome, was found dead on Saturday evening in the Tampa area according to those close to the family. He was 42.

Friends were coming to his home in Tampa to pick him up and go out Saturday night at about 10:30 p.m. and he never answered the door and found him hanging in the home. It is believed the death was due to suicide pending results of the autopsy.

Mike Awesome was one of the top foreign stars in FMW in Japan, who as a high-flying big man was made ECW champion on two occasions in 1999 and 2000. As champion, he signed with WCW, creating a situation that many feel ended up killing the title as Tazz from WWF was brought back to ECW to win the title, yet at the same time the title was jobbed in WWF.

He worked for a few months with WWF after the collapse of WCW, as well as with All Japan, but had not wrestled in some time. He was working as a realtor at Coldwell Banker at the time of his death.

RIP Awesome.

damn what is it with so many wrestlers dieing young

I always thought with the right gimmick Mike could of been a strong powerful main event star for many many years, but I guess since he was from ECW Eric and Vince didnt give a shit about him

Damn that sucks. I didn't see much of him, really only a little of his WCW stuff and his match against Masato Tanaka at ONS which was fucking awesome.

RIP Mike Awesome.

Just a fucking bout, yeah. Those matches were fucking ill. NEVER seen anything like what those two fucking nuts would do to each other. This fucking sucks.

...and come to think of it so does sales. To go from where he was to fitting into some crappy suit, kiss your ass realtor??

I mean yeah, some people are really good at it and make truckloads and it's great...but it's real easy to spend all your money being a realtor and not making any because you can't fucking sell. Sales isn't easy, and it's really hit or miss, you can either sell or you can't.

And it sucks working as hard as realtors do if you aren't making anything. It sucks hardcore.

Late.

I thought he was great. Loved his finisher, especially when it was through some table or something crazy like that. "The Awesome Bomb!!!!!", R.I.P Awesome.

Ok, that wasn't through a table but still cool.

Tragic.. I've always been a fan of Awesome even though some loved to hate him because of his ECW to WCW stint... he's without a doubt one of the most agile heavyweights I've ever had the pleasure to watch perform in the ring.

R.I.P Mike... you will be missed.
