The countdown to next Sunday’s WrestleMania began with the news that ex-wrestler Chase Tatum died last Sunday, at age 34, from what his father told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution was an accidental overdose. See http://www.ajc.com/search/content/shared-gen/ap/National/Former_Wrestler_Dead.html.
Dave Meltzer of Wrestling Observer Newsletter says Tatum was “a former competition bodybuilder who wrestled for years with WCW,” the Ted Turner-owned defunct chief rival of World Wrestling Entertainment.
Tatum, like Chris Benoit, lived in the Atlanta area. It will be interesting to see if Tatum turns up on the patient list of Carrollton, Georgia, physician Phil Astin, who is under federal indictment.
