Mike Shaw,1957-2010. R.I.P.

Former professional wrestler Mike Shaw died on September 11th of an apparent heart attack in his Michigan home. He was 53.

Shaw wrestled under a variety of identites in the 1980s and early 1990s. He wrestled as Makhan Singh in Stu Hart's Stampede Wrestling in Calgary. Later, he would get a shot in World Championship Wrestling (WCW) wrestling as Norman the Lunatic.

He is probably best remembered for his stint in the World Wrestling Federation (WWF as it was then known) as Bastion Booger. If that sounds gross it looked even worse. Yet it was oddly amusing. He was in a tag team with Bam Bam Bigelow but the team broke up over competing affections for Luna Vachon. Sadly, Bigelow died in 2007 while Vachon passed away last month.

Former WWE announcer Jim Ross has some kind words for Shaw.
