    Whoa… I mean, of all the wrestling guys who would probably pass away young, New Jack makes sense. But it’s still shocking and sad =(

    @Jake Allen: exactly what I thought. I loved New Jack in ECW. It’s not exactly surprising but I’m stunned all the same. Another ECW guy gone. Damn.

    Surprised he died but he took a lot of abuse, had serious brain damage, and took a lots of drugs so.
