Former WWE Superstar "Playboy" Buddy Rose has sadly passed away at age 56. Buddy (aka, Paul Perschmann) wrestled in WWE from the 70's to the early 90's. Where he wrestled stars like Tito Santana, Marty Jennety, Shawn Michaels, Roddy Piper and many more.

Paul passed away on April 28th in Portland, OR. No Details have been released on his death as of yet.

The son of former WWE and TNA wrestler Elix Skipper was shot to death last night in Columbus, Ohio. The 22-year-old was shot in his home after answering his door. He was taken to the hospital where he passed away. The police had a suspect in custody as of last night, but nothing further is known as of right now.



After seeing recent pics of Buddy Rose I can understand that one but no more details on the circumstances surrounding Elix Skipper's kid's death so can't really comment on that.

More info on the death of LeMarcus Skipper:

Quote:
LeMarcus Skipper, 22, was fatally shot in his apartment home. Skipper died in Columbus, where he had lived with his godmother. LeMarcus is the son of former wrestling champion, Elix Skipper. The elder Skipper had won the WCW and TNA during his professional career.

Lemarcus D Skipper had answered a door knock on his apartment door in the Near East Side of Columbus. Skipper was shot multiple times when a few men pushed their way in. Police think at least two men pushed their way in. One gunman fired at Skipper.

Police had caught one of the men who was in Skipper’s home at the time of the shooting. Police said he was a witness. Skipper’s godmother was also home when the shooting happened. She identified the man caught by police.

From our local paper here in Buckeye contry:

Quote:
THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH

Homicide detectives have obtained an arrest warrant for a 20-year-old man in a fatal shooting Wednesday afternoon on the Near East Side.

Robert D. Stevenson, of 419 Trevitt St. on the Near East Side, is charged with murder in the death of Lemarcus D. Skipper, 22, of 155 N. 17th St., Apt. G.

Skipper died at Grant Medical Center shortly after he was shot in the apartment he shared with his godmother, Brenda Smedley.

Smedley told police that Stevenson and at least one other man came to the apartment about 3:45 p.m. and confronted Skipper.

Smedley said on Thursday that she did not know Stevenson by name but that he had visited her godson at the apartment many times. She thought the two were friends, she said.

Police have not released a motive in the killing.
