Larry Sweeney

Sweeney was an upcoming wrestling star from Chicago who knew how to talk to the crowd as well as he knew how to grapple. Sadly, Sweeney suffered from bipolar disorder, which gave him a mental breakdown back in 2009 and forced him to retire temporarily. Sweeney attempted to return to wrestling in 2011, but his condition proved to be too much for him. He committed suicide by hanging himself at a wrestling school in Louisiana.
