"Mad Dog" Mike Bell passed away
Wrestler featured in movie "Bigger, Faster, Stronger" suddenly passes away
"Mad Dog" Mike Bell, who was featured in the movie "Bigger, Stronger, Faster," the heavily praised movie on anabolic steroids in sports, passed away this afternoon. He was 37.
Bell was the older brother of producer Chris Bell. Mike wrestled in the Northeast and the West Coast, as well as being an enhancement wrestler with the WWF.
The movie "Bigger, Stronger, Faster," was a study of steroids in sports, as well as within Bell's family in looking at his brothers, Mike, his older brother, a pro wrestler with goals of making it to the WWF, and Mark, his younger brother, who also did some pro wrestling and was also a world class powerlifter.
I'm going to venture a guess and say cardiac arrest mostly having to do with anabolics.
Here is what was said:
This is from Mark on his forum:
I have some bad news. My oldest brother Mike passed away today. Details are coming at me slowly but don't be upset if I don't share them with you.
As most of you know my brother suffered from addiction and deppression. To me how he died is not important, i'd rather think of how he lived. He was careless with others feelings and with his own body at times. He didn't always do the right thing, he made one bad decision after another. But nearly everyone who has ever met my brother would never forget him. Either because he was loud, rude, funny, emotional or maybe he even kicked their ass. People could relate to Mike even though he had a crazy side to him. Nearly everyone I ever talked to, who knew Mike was touched by him in one way or another. Even people who never met him who saw Bigger, Stronger, Faster were touched and effected by him.
I loved and idolized my big brother he will be missed but never forgotten!
RIP Big Brother I know you fought your heart out to get better.
That's sad news.
