Unhappy RIP Mike Awesome

Mike Awesome had been working as a realtor at Coldwell Banker in the Tampa area at the time of his death.

WWE has posted an article about Awesome's passing. WWE is saddened by news of the passing of Mike Alfonso, better known to wrestling fans as Mike Awesome. He was 42. Mike Awesome's first major exposure came overseas, where he became one of the Japan's top stars. Awesome would eventually become a star and champion in America while wrestling for Extreme Championship Wrestling. Following his successful run in ECW, Awesome spent time working in WCW and later WWE before retiring to his native Tampa, Florida. While in ECW, Awesome was a two-time World Champion and Tag Team Champion. His matches with Masato Tanaka, including a show-stealer at One Night Stand in 2005 were among the most memorable in ECW history.

As noted earlier, friends coming to pick him up from his Tampa home discovered his body Saturday night at about 10:30 pm. He was found hanging, and is believed a suicide.

his wife Nancy (43), and their 7-year old son Daniel, news of Mike
Awesome's suicide is now coming to light.

According to sources, Awesome was told by his wife that she was unhappy
and wanted a divorce. Upon hearing the news, Awesome physically confronted
his wife by grabbing her by the throat and throwing her against or into a
wall.

Awesome's wife called police and had Mike arrested for domestic abuse.
While in jail Awesome was told by his wife that she was leaving him,
taking his money, and, again according to sources, told the former ECW
Champion that she "hated" him. She then took what she could from their
home, threw out certain things that belonged to Awesome, and left.

Sources claim that Awesome was beyond distraught and very depressed about
the marriage, which he felt was stable and secure, all of a sudden being
stripped out from under him. All of this transpiring while Awesome was
still in jail, it should be noted.

Shortly after returning home from jail, with nothing left to come back to,
Awesome hanged himself. Friends discovered the body shortly afterwards.
Damn.

He had post-concussion syndrome and judging from all the unprotected chair shots he took to the head it was probably pretty bad.
Post-concussion syndrome has been linked to suicidal thoughts.
