Sean O’Haire, former WWE wrestler, passes away at 43

seanohaireSean O’Haire, real name Sean Christopher Haire, a former WWE and WCW wrestler was found to have committed suicide via hanging on Monday, according to information released by local police. The reports broke out over social media earlier today, with fellow wrestler and WCW alumni Scotty Riggs being one of the first to break the news via Twitter.

Sean was known by many for his runs in WCW as a part of tag teams with Mark Jindrak and Chuck Palumbo, becoming one half of the WCW tag team champions on several occasions, being a part of the WCW invasion of WWF, and of course with the promising debut in 2003 of his “Devil’s Advocate” character that we unfortunately never got to see at its full potential. Sean showed a lot of promise with his heel work, and even today people fondly remember the vignettes that could have lead to a huge star, as just before his departure with WWE, Haire was managed by the legendary “Rowdy” Roddy Piper, who brought him to several big wins, including a victory over Hulk Hogan.

During Haire’s in ring career, he was often cited as one of the most underrated wrestlers of his time, with fantastic character work both on the microphone and inside the ring as he moved with speed unusual for his size and spoke with a silver tongue. However, despite all of his positive points, Haire and the WWE mutually parted ways in April of 2003. Ultimately, Haire retired from the ring in 2006, with stints in mixed martial arts and kickboxing, and went on to be a hair stylist. The news comes as a shock to many.
