The former WWE (then-WWF) Superstar Buddy Wayne died after been knocked down by heart attack as confirmed by several professional wrestlers and pro wrestling personalities on Twitter, including Mauro Ranallo whose Tweet can be seen below.
As his death rings hard in the heart of Professional wrestlers, Davey Boy Smith Jr. eventually took to his Twitter account and posted a tribute to Buddy Wayne.
For the heck of it, we mean to note that Buddy Wayne was a professional wrestler and wrestling trainer who wrestled extensively throughout North America during his career.
After making his debut in 1985, Wayne had wrestled for both the WWE and WCW and had matches with the likes of Shawn Michaels, Razor Ramon (Scott Hall), Bam Bam Bigelow, and Edge during his tenure with the WWE.
While several individuals wonder about his heart challenge in regards to what must have cost him his life, reports reaching us categorically state that Buddy Wayne had a record of heart problems and made his return to in-ring wrestling in 2013 after two open heart surgeries.
