Verne Troyer dead

TMZ.com is reporting Verne Troyer, best known for playing Mini-Me in the “Austin Powers” comedies and for being one of the shortest men in the world, has died.

Troyer was the Guest Host of WWE Monday Night RAW on November 30, 2009 when he interacted with The Miz, Mark Henry, Jillian Hall, MVP, Big Show and Chris Jericho.
