Former WWE superstar Big Daddy V died on Tuesday night. He was 42 years old.
Big Daddy V, whose real name is Nelson Frazier Jr., died after suffering a major heart attack, TMZ reports. He was also known as “Mabel” and “Viscera” during his WWE career.
Frazier entered the WWE in 1993, using the ring name Mabel as a member of the popular tag team called Men on a Mission. He changed his name to Viscera after joining WWE wrestler The Undertaker’s infamous “Ministry of Darkness” faction, and, finally, to Big Daddy V when he embarked on a solo career.
The WWE star amassed several notable accomplishments during his run in the organization. He was a former WWE tag team champion and a Hardcore champion, and he won the 1995 King of the Ring tournament, according to the company’s official statement regarding his passing.
“WWE is saddened by the news that Nelson Frazier Jr., aka Big Daddy V and Mabel, has passed away,” WWE said in a statement. “Our deepest condolences go out to Frazier’s family, friends and fans.”
Former pro wrestler MVP took to Twitter on Tuesday to mourn his friend’s passing, TMZ notes. “Me & Vis used to chill hard. All over the world or across the country. He was my dude! So many great times. Just hit him up not long ago...” he wrote.
“I’m going to put one in the air for my fallen colleague Big Vis. This s--t always sucks, but some suck more than others.”
