By Art Shimko

I found out at work today that Bam Bam Bigelow died, sad to see yet another pro wrestler from our generation pass away so soon, again in his forties like his contemporaries who've passed on as well. Bigelow was a big part of my wrestling watching as a kid, I was amazed at how agile a huge man could be. Rest in peace Scott, hope you're in a better place now. WWE's report is below...

Bam Bam Bigelow passes away has learned that former WWE Superstar Scott "Bam Bam" Bigelow has passed away in Florida.

Kevin Doll, the Public Information Director for the Pasco County Sheriff's Office confirmed that Bigelow was found dead early this morning in his home in Hudson, Fla.

"We can confirm that Scott Bigelow was found in his home this morning. At this time the cause of death is unknown," Doll told

Doll also confirmed that the Pasco-Pinellas Counties medical examiner has taken the body and an autopsy will be performed.

Bigelow, 45, worked for WWE, ECW and WCW extensively throughout his 20-year sports-entertainment career. A former ECW Champion, ECW Television Champion and WCW Tag Team Champion, he is perhaps best known for his rivalry with Lawrence Taylor that culminated in the main event of WrestleMania XI in 1995.
