- Georgeann Markpolous of Wrestlingfigs.com reported some additional details regarding the sudden passing of Chris Candido. From what is known at this time, Candido collapsed in his home on Thursday night and was then rushed to a hospital by amublance. Candido eventually passed away a short time later.

Chris Candido's brother stated to a few wrestling websites that the cause of death appears to be a blood clot after complications from surgery. As reported earlier in the week, Candido underwent surgery on Monday after he suffering a serious ankle injury during the first match of the Lockdown PPV this past Sunday.

We hope to have more information as it becomes available. I'd like to thank all those who sent word via e-mail regarding Candido's passing. Also, thanks to Jay Flannagan for helping with this update as well.
