    Mike Aldren wrote (January 10, 2011): Valentino Puccio, a Northeast worker who wrestled briefly in ECW and WWE, passed away at the age of 45. Puccio was north of 400lbs and his death is thought to be related to obesity. He broke into the business after training with Johnny Rodz in 1989 and together with his brother Tony formed a tag team called “The Undertakers” until WWE paid them off for the rights to the name in 1990 in order to call Mark Calaway The Undertaker. They went on to work for WWE for a few months as the team Double Trouble but were soon dropped. Puccio was chronicled on the 2008 TLC reality series Inside the Brookhaven Obesity Clinic, where he was once a patient.
