Not everything that is remembered is funny or good or makes you happy something's that you recall are things that make you sad or even depressed. This form of emotional expression has been very evident within the last few months due to the unfortunate passing of so many legends, but last year we didn't get off scot free. Fact is we lost a man who never had the opportunity to achieve his potential even though he had so much talent. Now sadly we take a trip back in time to when the world found out about the passing of former WWE & WCW alumni Sean O' Haire.
Sadly, this isn't the first time I said this here as it seems I have said this far too often for my liking because I never like writing about the passing of another wrestler. Unfortunately it seems most of the members of our favorite stars pass away very young as compared to some other sporting outlets. The news broke late last night that former MMA fighter and most notably former pro-wrestler Sean O' Haire had passed away. I like most members of the IWC was very saddened to hear the news and hoped that this new was false and Sean would come out and deny the rumors, sadly he did not and it was later confirmed he had passed.
For those who may be unaware of Sean's past in wrestling, he was a trainee of the WCW Power Plant and up on television as a part of the group named the Natural Born Thrillers with many other Power Plant graduates. During his time in WCW from around late 1999-2001, Sean had success in WCW's Tag Team division with his partner Chuck Palumbo whom he won the Tag Team titles with on multiple occasions. Then after WCW was bought by the WWF, Sean's contract was one of those that carried over and Sean continued teaming with Chuck Palumbo as the WCW World Tag Team Champions. After the Invasion ended in November 2002, Sean was repackaged and re-debuted on Smackdown after weeks of Vignette building to his debut. Sean was let go from the company in 2004 and had been on the Independents since then, however more recently it seems like Sean had been sadly dealing with depression and substance abuse. As more news comes out we have found that Sean was found in his home and reports seems to point to suicide as the cause of death. I am one of the many people that believe Sean had the talent and the potential to become something special in wrestling but never was allowed to realize his potential. I would like to extend my deepest condolences to the family of Sean O' Haire and I would also like to add that Sean will be missed by his family, friends and his fans.
RIP Sean O' Haire
Gone but Never Forgotten
