Was this his match against Matt Tremont back at the arena by any chance? I’ve seen a couple of wrestlers in action live that have since passed away (Eddie Guerrero, Chris Benoit, Trent Acid) but once I actually met, shook hands and posed for photos with a wrestler who is no longer with us. It was Bison Smith, who wrestled extensively for NOAH in Japan. It certainly gives an eerie feeling, looking back at the photo.
Yeah that was the show. His last match ever I think.
I just found out about this and the weird part is I just finished watching his Masters of Pain match w/ Necro Butcher. RIP, Brain Damage. Oh, about the smiley that TaylorFitz was wondering about...that there is Obama's DeNiro impression.
