Former WWE wrestling superstar Sean O’Haire has been found dead at his home in America.
The cause of the 43-year-old’s death remained a mystery but police have said no foul was suspected after visiting his house in South Carolina.
His death is the latest in long line of wrestlers who’s lives have ended prematurely.
O’Haire -real name was just Sean Haire – made his debut in the now defunct WCW in 2000 going to win their tag team championship three times with with partner Chuck Palumbo.
However he became a household name when joined the WWE, who earmarked him stardom.
He became the protege of wrestling legend Rowdy Roddy Piper but when the Scot left in 2003, O’Haire’s career fizzled out and eventually a year later he was released.
Standing 6ft 6ins tall he had been talked about as one of the most talented wrestlers who never made world champion.
The death rate among wrestlers is alarmingly high with more than 200 of them dying prematurely since 1990.

The “iconic” 54-year-old, real name James Hellwig, was returning to his hotel in Arizona when he collapsed in front of his wife Dana.
