    Ex-WWE Star Luna — Death Ruled ‘Accidental’

    Former WWE star Gertrude “Luna” Vachon died from an overdose of painkillers and anti-anxiety medication … this according to the District Six Medical Examiner’s Office in Florida.

    We’re told toxicology results finally came back this morning — and revealed the 48-year-old wrestler had oxycodone and benzodiazepine in her system when she died in her Florida home back in August. The “manner of death” was ruled “accidental.”

    As we previously reported, investigators found crushed pill residue and snorting straws at multiple locations inside Luna’s house.

    Luna’s ashes were scattered last month at the North Carolina ranch where her godfather Andre The Giant was also laid to rest.

  • Legendary General Skandor Akbar Passes Away At Age 75

    Posted on August 20th, 2010 admin 1 comment

    Legendary pro wrestling manager and in-ring performer Jim Wheba, more famously known as General Skandor Akbar, passed away this past Thursday, August 19, at age 75.

    Until recently, Wheba was still an active performer in the wrestling industry, working random independent shows as a wrestling manager in such markets as Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma and Arkansas.

    Wheba started off as a protege of Danny Hodge, a man who is still today viewed alongside Kurt Angle and Brock Lesnar as one of the most legitimate “tough guys” in wrestling history. Wheba would go on to become a rival of Hodge in the business, working matches against him in the 1960s for the NWA Junior Heavyweight title.

    Wheba will likely be most remembered for his General Skandor Akbar character, which gained him the most notoriety in his career during his run in both Mid-South Wrestling and World Class Championship Wrestling.

  • Details Revealed Behind The Passing of Lance Cade

    Posted on August 16th, 2010 admin 12 comments

    The Wrestling Observer is reporting that the body of former WWE star Lance Cade was discovered earlier today by his father, Harley. As WWE has reported, the cause of death appears to be heart failure, however that has yet to be officially announced.

    It’s being said that two family members believed there was something wrong with Cade over the past week, including his wife Tracy who noticed he didn’t look healthy and that he was having trouble breathing. Cade was rushed to the hospital on Tuesday night and he was later released on Wednesday.

    One interesting note is that once he returned home, he later left and never returned. His father, Harley, noticed that Cade showed up at his work on Thursday and was not looking good at all. He later went to Cade’s home in San Antonio, TX and discovered he had passed away. Cade was not believed to have been drinking.
