A Year Later.

A year has passed since the baffling and unneeded death Marvin Lambert, better known in the wrestling world as Brain Damage. Evidently fighting long term depression, which he would have denied and in fact did deny to those around him, (which this correspondent can personally attest to) was a tougher brattle to face than any opponent in the ring. Sadly, he hanged himself last year.

"Everything's fine," he kept muttering in his unnaturally soft voice. "Everything's fine."

Clearly, all was not fine.

This past week, the tributes have flown online everywhere and he is still fondly remembered by those who knew him.

Many of this wrestler's matches may be seen on You Tube. He was known for his extremely violent style He is especially remembered for savage feuds with Mr. Insanity and Necro Butcher. .
