Larry Sweeney

In yesterday's post, I noted how Scott Hall's illness was a warning sign and today I would like to mention Larry Sweeney, another person who - over the past few years - showed signs of trouble.

As some of you know, Sweeney died yesterday. He was found hanging from a wrestling ring post in what I think is one of the saddest, yet symbolic, wrestler deaths.

He was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and the last years of his life mirrored that of Chris Kanyon, another wrestler who suffered from the illness and ended up taking his own life.

Unlike Kanyon, Sweeney didn't reach WWE. Still, it doesn't make his passing any less significant.
