Don’t Look Now, But Another Pro Wrestler Just Died Young

[posted 6/19/10 to]

Michael Verdi (“Trent Acid”), a prominent pro wrestler on the independent circuit who seemed ticketed for a major league career before drug problems derailed him, has died at 29. His grandmother found him dead.

Of course, Verdi/Acid was never a World Wrestling Entertainment “independent contractor” — so he doesn’t count.

Besides — who’s counting?
