The death of Brian Pillman

On October 5, 1997, the day of the WWF's In Your House: Badd Blood pay per view in St. Louis, Brian Pillman was found dead in a Minnesota hotel room. He was 35 years old. While he had a documented history of abuse of prescription drugs, an autopsy found that a previously undetected heart condition - arteriosclerotic heart disease - had led to his death. Pillman did not know that he was about to become a father once again when he died. A tribute episode of Monday Night Raw was held in his honour.
