• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (December 6, 2003) – WCW Veteran Passed Away
On this day in 2003, we lost Old School WCW Wrestler The Wall (Real name: Michael Jerome “Jerry” Tuite) after suffering a heart attack at the young age of 36.
He debuted in 1999, as the bodyguard of Berlyn (Alex Wright) and later became a member of the infamous ‘M.I.A. Misfits In Action’ faction.
Some might even remember him as Malice in the early days of TNA Total Nonstop Action, where he feuded with NWA World Heavyweight Champion Ken Shamrock.
