Bill Fralic, Pro Bowl linebacker for the Atlanta Falcons, age 56 of cancer.

Saddened to hear of the passing of Bill Fralic.  I remember he used to appear on professional wrestling programs as well, most notably the Stars and Stripes Challenge on Independence Day 1993.  I remember he was the closest of all the challengers to bodyslamming Yokozuna before Lex Luger showed up.

And he was also in the NFL/WWF battle royal at WrestleMania 2 in 1986.
