Degenerating discs in his back led to surgeries and an addiction to painkillers, apparently.

"accidental drug overdose"

when people OD on painkillers, it's usually not an accident

Yep, unless he had just scarfed a few footlong chili cheese dogs and mistook the bottle of painkillers for Tums, I'm not buying it.

BTW, dude I love your avatar.

I used to watch WCW all the time and I have no idea who this guy is... I wonder if Lenny and Lodi ever got married?

yea just because he signed up for WCW doesn't mean he was really in WCW. He probably had a training contract which back then if you lived in Atlanta and had muscles you could have a Training contract. I really think the media is running the wrestling thing into the ground with bringing up guys like this that really didn't wrestle.(atleast not on a big stage like WCW or WWF/WWE.
