Two more wrestling deaths reported

Two more deaths were reported late on Sunday just hours from each other.

According to WrestlingObserver.com, Mexican pro wrestler Abismo Negro (Andres Palomeque) was found dead in a river in Mexico. Abismo Negro (which translates to Black Abyss) was only 37 years old. There are no other details available at this time.

Abismo Negro made his career working down in Mexico, but had a few notable US wrestling appearances, including a brief stint in the WWF in early 1997 and as part of “Team Mexico” during TNA Wrestling’s 2004 World X-Cup.

It has also been reported that Steve Doll passed away at the age of 44. In 2007 Doll was hospitalized after having a seizure related to an intestinal blockage. He underwent surgery, and had been placed on life support. His family decided to remove him from his ventilator and let him pass on.

Doll was a regional star through the 1990s and found his most success with tag team partner Rex King. Doll and King had a run in the WWF in from 1993 – 1995 as Steven Dunn and Timothy Well a.k.a. “Well Dunn.” Doll also worked briefly as an undercard for World Championship Wrestling in 1996 – 1997.

My condolences go out to both men’s friends and families.
