Guess Who's Dead Now II: The Resurrection.

Recommended Posts

Star Wars Actor Peter Mayhew. He was Chewbacca in every movie up until now in the franchise. Though he didn't play the entire role in the more recent films due to his age and health issues, he always appeared in the less demanding scenes as the character.

     Briefly met him at a Star Wars Weekends.  Have a pic with him and got an autograph.  He was tall and nice as advertised.

Can confirm. I've met him a handful of times at various cons over the years. He was always charming and kind.

 

I've also had him reply to a comment of mine on Reddit.

 

You can go through is comment history there and see just what kind of guy he was. A real class act that was always ready with words of encouragement and a cheerful disposition.

 

His last post was a cheerful greeting to someone who simply said hello.

One of my early crushes, along with Debbie Reynolds. 

I remember my mom seeing Doris and Rock Hudson snuggling on Doris' daytime show and exclaiming "Why don't they just get married?!" Well... if I had even suggested that the well known movie hunk was not seen with any women outside of movies, I'd have been sent to my room. But they were very sweet together in films. I've raised some eyebrows snuggling with a local lady singer, but she's gay and monogamous. We just like to flirt a lot for fun, and she's one of my dearest friends.

I can't support professional wrestling on any level anymore because they don't take care of their people and deny any responsibility for the toll it takes on their performers.

This death is just yet another tragic example of it.

They abuse legal loopholes that they aren't even really entitled to use to horrific levels of disgusting behaviors. It has been especially bad since the WWE effectively became a monopoly in the industry.

The former WWF and current WWE are ten times worse than the NFL has ever been. The mortality rates of former wrestlers is staggering.

The amount of former wrestling stars that have had to resort to crowdfunding to help pay for their medical expenses is downright disturbing.

Vince is a garbage human being. He's even more evil than the character he plays in the ring. I will never give that man another dime as long as I live.

It's a shame, because pro wrestling was such a big part of my childhood. I can't even stomach watching it anymore, and it has nothing to do with the camp or silliness of the events themselves or any superficial reasons like that. I can't in good consience do anything to promote or support it anymore.
