I loved to hate him when I was younger, and was just laughing the other day about the incident with Al Snow's poodle

RIP, Big Boss Man

"causes unknown" but given the frequency of former V McM employees dying early, it's not too hard to guess . . . :(

If ya ever take a trip down to Cobb County, Ga . . . farewell Boss Man. I'll always remember the Twin Towers.

I live about 30 mins from "Cobb County, GA" now. And its nothing like I pictured it to be when I was a kid (grew up in Bristol, CT) and first saw the Boss Man! I expected a very backwoods redneck town, but its actually very modern. The best Guitar Center in GA is right in the middle.

Sad news, Too many wrestlers have been dying lately... I had heard earlier this year he was supposed to be returning to the ring in WWE.
RIP Boss Man, you will be missed. :cry:

The boss man was actually running for some public office out here in Paulding county (just west of Cobb), that's where all the backwoods rednecks are that you heard about - across the street from me :) . i remember one time when the boss man came to my middle school and had lunch with one of my teachers (they were good pals). i heard about him passing the day before yesterday and was blown away. rest in peace, boss.
