Another former pro wrestler has passed away at an all-too-early age

Former ECW and WWE wrestler Balls Mahoney, real name Jonathan Rechner, passed away Tuesday at the age of 44.

Rechner was well-traveled in the wrestling industry, but is most famous for his ripped jean shorts, chair shots and devastating pile drivers.

He also took a powerbomb through flaming tables better than anyone in the business.

Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.
