Sad News!! Former WWE wrestler Nelson Frazier, Jr, who wrestled under the ring names Viscera, Big Daddy V, Mabel, and King Mabel, passed away yesterday of what appears to be a massive heart attack.
He wrestled in WWE for numerous years and during many different eras. He first appeared in the mid-nineties as Mabel and was part of a tag team called The Harlem Knights before their name was changed to Men on a Mission.
Later in his career, he wrestled as Viscera and was a part of the Ministry of Darkness stable led by the Undertaker. After a short stint, he left and came back again in 2004.
Once he returned, he moved around from show to show and was eventually repacked for the new ECW brand as Big Daddy V. He last wrestled for WWE back in March of 2008 when he lost to CM Punk.
Jim Ross and former WWE star Chris Masters posted the following on Twitter:
