Unfortunately, we have another wrestling death to report about.

Sailor Ed White, who wrestled around the world but was most popular in Eastern Canada as well as Southern Africa, died at age 56. He had battled drugs and alcohol addiction earlier in his life, after his wrestling career was over, and after become a reborn Christian, still had plenty of health issues over the past few years, when he moved to his hometown of St. John's.
