Death Of Billy Scream

Billy Scream, a Tucson based wrestler, could take no more and sadly killed himself this week. he had been plagued with disabilities, including very serious knee and back problems due to past wrestling and extreme weight.

Scream started wrestling in Phoenix and Tucson in 1987, after being trained by Ron Sutherland (Ron Von Hess/Section 8). He continued to wrestle for many years, often teaming with Sutherland. he proved to be very popular with his hometown Tucson crowd.  His finishers were a power slam and a crushing bear hug.

Past opponents included The Time Traveler, The Golden Eagle,  Black Mamba, Thrillseeker Terry Zeller,  The Lumberjacks, Flama Negra, The Gravedigger, The Deathdealer, Bonecrusher, Bladerunner and Hatchet Jack.

His health was so bad he reportedly was unable to attend a recent ceremony at Tucson matches paying tribute to him.

He will be missed.
