The pro wrestler Stevie Lee passed away on Wednesday because of a heart attack. His friend Jacob ‘Turtle’ Colyer confirmed the news. He also said that Lee was always living in the moment and used to enjoy his life to the fullest. Although his death was unfortunate, there was no kind of suffering. Lee was a dwarf and was a part of a sport called midget wrestling. The game was never even considered a sport and was always made fun of. But, when Lee entered the sport, he changed the whole dynamic of it. The sport began in the 1950s. Sky Low Low was the first winner of the World Midget Championship. Even then, the sport was always considered as a source of entertainment rather than sport. However, Lee got people to support midget wrestling and encouraged it on a large scale.
