Some very sad news to report from Japan. Wrestling legend Hayabusa has been found dead. Early reports are saying that he passed away from a subarachnoid hemorrhage. The man known legally as Eiji Ezaki was just 47 years old. Ezaki had been bound to a wheelchair for more than a decade after suffering a horrific injury during a wrestling match. Some may remember Hayabusa from a series of matches that he did for ECW.

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.

Dreamer is expected to remain with the promotion for at least a month so that they can work a big tag team match against the Wyatt Family.
