We received this statement over the Labor Day weekend:
Big Vito deeply saddened by the sudden death of Kathy Lo Grasso
Tampa, FL: September 2, 2007 Ã¢â‚¬â€œ It is with deep regret that Big Vito shares with friends and fans of the death of Kathy Lo Grasso, his ex-wife and the mother of his four children. It was Kathy’s dream to see him wrestle for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) which Big Vito was able to realize until the end of his contract with them in May, 2007.

“She had many friends in the wrestling world,Ã¢â‚¬Â said Big Vito. “My family appreciates the outpouring of support that has already been expressed. She was a kind, caring, amazing woman and will be missed by many.Ã¢â‚¬Â
