After a very rough year, Axl Rotten has passed away. WWE themselves have confirmed that the ECW legend is dead. Back issues, among other things, have forced Rotten to be in and out of the hospital. Since he exhausted all of his funds while not being able to work, Axl asked for help from fans to pay his medical bills. Chris Jericho was one of the first people to send some money towards Rotten. He was 44 years old.
