Right After Wrestling with Arda Ocal and Jimmy Korderas welcome former WWE Diva “Tiffany”, Taryn Terrell to the program here. EXCERPT: “Whether that incident is attributed to my release or not, I don’t think I’ll ever know.. certainly the timing would say so. It was really stupid and it was somebody that had an axe to grind with us for no reason. Obviously nothing happened because everything was dropped immediately, and the person that decided to make up a little story.. karma’s a you know what. It’s a shame because they really screwed with somebody’s life and that’s sad when people do that. The internet world went crazy with it because it was something very controversial.”

Former Pro Wrestler, Strongest Man Competitor Found Dead

ZEBULON, N.C. — One of the world’s strongest men, who flipped four-door Ford Escort automobiles for sport, has died at age 29.

Johnny Perry was found dead in the bedroom of his Zebulon home by his live-in girlfriend on Thursday morning. An autopsy will be performed.

Police say foul play isn’t suspected. Autopsy results conducted by the county’s medical examiner were not yet ready to offer a preliminary cause of death.

A former pro wrestler who went by the name “Steel,” Perry has competed in the World’s Strongest Man competition for the last few years. He was to leave this weekend to compete in next week’s Sweden Grand Prix.

He had most recently competed at the 2002 World’s Strongest Man Competition in Malaysia in August, reaching the finals and finishing fourth. He had been the runner-up in the American Championship in July.

At the world event, Perry had measured at 6-5 and 390 pounds, with a 42-inch waist to go along with 25-inch biceps.

Perry was regarded as one of the nicest strongmen on the circuit, despite his intimidating appearance, which was bolstered by tattoos and piercings.
