R.I.P "Dr. Death" Steve Williams

It's being reported that former All Japan Pro Wrestling Triple Crown Champion Dr. Death Steve Williams has passed away on Wednesday, 30th December 2009 after a long battle with cancer. He was 49.

No doubt many fans like myself became fans of Dr. Death after watching him almost murder Kenta Kobashi with some of the sickest looking backdrop drivers in the history of the sport in the early 90s. Heck, his Triple Crown title defense against Kenta Kobashi in 1994 still ranks as one of my all time favorite matches.

My condolences to the family Steve Williams.
You will be missed.
