From NoDQ.com:

"Ray "Big Bossman" Traylor passed away suddenly at his home tonight. Traylor, who was 42, got his start as Jim Cornette's bodyguard Big Bubba Rogers in 1986 after he left his job as a prison guard in Marietta, GA.

After leaving Crockett promotions over pay, his real life job became is gimmick as the Big Bossman, the evil prison guard, who had a big run with Hulk Hogan.

He was also a major star with All Japan Pro Wrestling as Big Bubba in the 90s, before returning to the WWF in recent years.

At this point his death is a mystery. He had not been complaining of feeling bad, other than a bad knee. His wife found him in a room tonight and he wasn't breathing. Paramedica were unable to revive him."

So sad :0(

Actually, you're wrong. Deaths stick in the mind, but what about all the old stars who don't die until well into their old age? I'm sure the ratio is in favour of the ones who actually manage to grow old.

No. I really wasn't looking for any more suitable word. I agree that it's overused absolutely, I'm not saying call every single underpaid sap "Legend" but I mean, c'mon, how can Gangrel not be cool? Big Bossman? Well, if Shawn Michaels deserves it, he does. Mind you, with a name like "Traylor" he was destined to have his talent seemingly suppressed... ...Meh. Sleep well all.

Legend probably isn't the word, but he's one of the greats, in my opinion.
