According to PWInsider, former WWE and WCW wrestler Sean O’Haire (real name: Sean Christopher Haire) has passed away at the age of 43. The official obituary notes that he died Monday, in his home in Spartanburg, NC.
O’Haire was trained at the WCW Power Plant, and made his pro wrestling debut on an episode of WCW Nitro in 2000. In his year with the company he became a three-time WCW Tag Team Champion, twice with Mark Jindrak and another with Chuck Palumbo. When WWE bought out WCW O’Haire’s contract was purchased and he made his debut on Smackdown as part of The Alliance. As a team, O’Haire and Palumbo had feuds with the Brothers of Destruction and the Acolytes Protection Agency (APA), as well as stars like Lex Luger, Buff Bagwell, and Team Canada in WCW.
After wrestling, O’Haire pursued the sport of Kickboxing, before transitioning into MMA, where he finished his career with a professional record of 4-2.
