Default BREAKING NEWS: Doink The Clown Dead

TMZ has reported that Matt Osborne, who portrayed Doink The Clown, has passed.



Quote:
Ex-WWE star Doink the Clown -- a hugely popular wrestler in the '90s -- was found dead today in Texas.

Doink, real name Matt Osborne, was known for pulling pranks on the other wrestlers ... all while decked out in full greasepaint and a green wig.

Details about Doink's death are unclear at this point -- but his girlfriend reportedly found him dead in her home ... where he'd been staying lately.

After leaving the WWE, he continued wrestling for ECW and independent leagues ... still sporting the clown costume.

More recently, he's been attending wrestling conventions and doing autograph sessions with fans.

Doink was 55.

That's sad to hear. I think everyone who watched wrestling loved Doink the Clown.

Thoughts go out to his Girlfriend and family.

Sad. So young. My condolences to the family. Let the HOF debate begin.

All those those wrestlers from the New Generation Era, Bret Hart, Razor Ramon, Yokozuna, those guys were the guys I watched so much as a kid as I really started getting hardcore into wrestling. Doink was in that mix for sure he was apart of that. I remember when Doink was in that fued with Crush, I was talking to one of my friends at recess in elementary school and he was so frustrated because he wanted Crush to squash Doink but Doink would always find some underhanded way to get the advantage and beatdown on Crush. My condolences go out to Osborne's family as well.

I'm honestly sad about the passing of Matt Osborne - he has my respect for grabbing a shitty gimmick like a freaking clown, and make it work in the world of professional wrestling. Even though I was not, and still ain't a big fan of his, it's always sad to hear those type of news - I recall his feud with Crusher at WrestleMania IX, and his feud with Savage and later on with Bret Hart (even though it wasn't even thought). He had a shot, something that most guys don't have, and he ran with it, despite being a talented worker and he made money out of it. I say that he created such a figure that to this day millions of people in the world know him - I hope he can find peace, and that his family feel that the fans are grateful for his work and life.

RIP

Tell me you didn't just say that. I don't know which is worse... Having Koko B Ware in the Hall of Fame or the idea of discussing putting Doink in the Hall.

Why not? He's a memorable character and entertained us all. I think he should be put into the Hall of Fame for that alone.

The first Doink was awesome. He was a great heel and entertaining. R.I.P Matt Borne an under-rated wrestler and entertainer.

It's a sham Hall of Fame. A work. Not legitimate. Matt Bourne/Doink the Clown is as eligible a candidate as anyone that Vince feels like putting in. Not to mention that Bourne pre-Doink and as Doink made his mark in wrestling. He'll never be considered an all-time great, but to dismiss his WWE HOF credibility out of hand is ludicrous. I'd have no qualms with him going in, and that went before he passed as well. May he rest in peace.
