• Former WWE Wrestler Died By Suicide 8 Years Ago Today
On this day in 2014, we lost Old School WCW & WWE Wrestler Sean O’Haire (Real name: Sean Christopher Haire) at the age of 43 due to suicide.
Trained at WCW’s own Wrestling School, the WCW Power Plant, Sean had his televised debut on WCW TV in mid-2000 and soon became a member of the ‘Natural Born Thrillers’ stable.
When WCW was bought by Vince McMahon in 2001, so was O’Haire’s contract.
He left the WWE in 2004 and got into MMA, where he had a 4-2 record.
