Sad news today that former WCW/WWE wrestler and former K-1 fighter Sean O'Haire passed away yesterday at the age of 43. O'Haire's career began in WCW where he entered the WCW Power Planet where they trained new wrestlers. From there he ended up on WCW television in 2000 until the company was sold to WWE in 2001. He continued on to WWE (WWF at the time) where he competed under numerous gimmicks before he was released in 2004.
It was no secret that he loved fighting sports and was soon given an offer to compete for K-1 in 2004. O'Haire's focus was split between MMA, kickboxing and professional wrestling for most of his time in the ring, but he wasn't without controversy. K-1 had claimed that O'Haire had a 10-1 kickboxing record and 8-0 MMA record, which of course he had two MMA fights in 2004 that he won and zero kickboxing bouts until he made his K-1 debut. O'Haire couldn't quite hang in K-1, but brought them a lot of attention until he retired from kickboxing and MMA to settle down and be a barber in South Carolina.
Condolences to his friends, family and fans across the world.
