    This is from the Observer.com


    Curt Hennig, who was in his prime one of the most talented wrestlers of the modern era, died earlier today in Tampa. He was 44.

    Hennig was in town for a show being promoted by Jimmy Hart at the Tampa State Fairgrounds tonight. He was seen alive at 9:30 a.m. by Mickey Jay in his room, but a few hours later when he failed to show up at the gym, a workout partner went back to the room and he was found passed out at about 1 p.m. He was officially pronounced dead a short time later.

    He'll be missed,as i remeber watching him live lots of time for the AWA,god bless curt henning and his family

    Man this is a bummer. Mr. Perfect was an awesome gimmick of his.

    RIP Curt :(

    I really liked Curt Henning and enjoyed many years of "Mr. Perfect" early on in the WWF with Bobby Hennan as his manager. The wrestling world has lost another one of its better superstars. My condolences go out to his family and my prayers will be with them.

    I loved the whole MR PERFECT gimmick ... especially those promos where showcased how perfectly he accelled at anything he did.
