Stevie Lee, an expert wrestler known as “Puppet The Psycho Dwarf” who starred in the movie “Jackass 3D,” has died. He was 54.
Lee kicked the bucket on Wednesday morning from a sudden coronary failure in his home, companion and individual wrestler Jacob “Turtle” Colyer affirmed to CNN.
“He’s the nicest guy I’ve ever known,” Colyer said. “He enjoyed life, that’s what it was. He was all about living in the moment.”
Prior to acting, Lee made his name on the wrestling circuit, and Colyer said Lee totally changed the game of “Midget Wrestling.” Previously, he stated, the group was seen like a joke, yet Lee was a necessary piece of changing all that.
Lee established the Half Pint Brawlers, a “Midget Wrestling” organization that later turned into an unscripted tv show on Spike TV in 2010.
Lee resembled an older sibling to everybody he met, Colyer stated, and could perk up even the saddest individual.
“When he walks in with that big ol’ smile on his face, the whole room brightens up,” Colyer said. “I’m gonna miss that about him.”
