Professional wrestler Brian "Crush" Adams died in Florida of natural causes at the age of 44; a mere two months after his buddy Chris Benoit became an hero, "Crush" finally succumbed to a broken heart.
His wife found him in bed, tied up in some strange contraption that seemed to partially strangle him while he masturbated. Authorities later confirmed that this had nothing to do with the WWE star's death, and that he was just a very emotional guy who really had no particular reason to go on living.
