(UPDATE: The World Wrestling Council posted that Timothy Smith, King Rex, is not dead because he answered his phone. Pretty good way to know someone is alive. Apologies to Tim and his family.)
Former WWE wrestler Timothy Well is dead at 49 years old. His real name was Timothy Smith and he wrestled under the names Rex King and the aforementioned Timothy Well. Tim had a long run in wrestling including stints in Pacific Northwest Wrestling, USWA and WWF with his tag team partner Steve Doll (also known as Steve Dunn who passed away in 2009). Later Tim went on to become a huge name in Puerto Rico’s World Wrestling Council until an injury forced him to retire in 2002.
As with all wrestling deaths, his passing will be felt by friends and fellow workers world wide.
