    I just read that and felt shocked. Not surprised one bit.. just. Shocked, really. After everything he's put his body through, you'd think he was damn invincible.

    If nothing else, New Jack was never boring. His in ring work gets a lot of trash, but there was a time when he was one of the best promos and had an amazing connection with the fans. For a guy who never worked WWE or WCW, he had a lot of memorable roles from having the most well known run ins to even having a fun wacky tag team with Shark Boy back in the early days of TNA. Apparently, he could be a really nice guy if he was in a good mood and he liked you.

    I feel the same. Not a huge fan, but he just felt like someone who'd be around forever just to slap fate in the face. RIP

    Re: New Jack has passed away

    I absolutely adored New Jack so I'm genuinely saddened by this news. I won't stand here and pretend that New Jack was a great in ring worker. But as a character he was fantastic and he really was willing to put his body on the line. He also was apart of some of wrestling's most insane and at times controversial moments. I'm just if nothing else we got to hear his story on Dark Side of the Ring before he passed. RIP

    Couldn't believe it when I heard. Can't say ECW without him.

    Sad news. Guy is gold on the mic and in segments. Check out This SMW clip of the Gangstas looking for Undertaker. In fact New Jack has a lot of awesome stuff from SMW.

    Meeting him at a Wrestling con in Manchester was something else. Just standing next to him, he's an intimidating dude. RIP.

    A genuine hardcore wrestling legend gone. When you think about ECW then he's one of the first names that comes to mind. Never an in-ring whizz, but he could talk a mean promo and you can't say that he didn't put his body through literally anything. When you think of some of the crazy stuff he's done it's amazing that he was still alive and not in a wheelchair really.
    I'm not sure how likely he is to get inducted into the WWE HoF, but I'd like to think that he would be at least considered for a posthumous induciton, especially as Paul Heyman gave him a tribute on an actual WWE tv show.

    I mean, there's a reason why the WWE never brought him in, even for an One Night Stand...

    I'd imagine they'd throw him in the legacy wing or whatever it is called to be honest.
    I have a plan so cunning......
