Now, a close friend and former WWE star, Brian Blair spoke to The Associated Press reportedly revealing the cause of death. "He was just under the weather, he thought he had the flu or something. I said, 'You, need to get checked out, Rocky.' He said he'd be OK," Brian shared with AP and added, "Then he missed this Sunday, a few days ago. When I talked to him again, he said he still wasn't feeling good and he still missed church. He still didn't get checked out. I talked to Sheila and she said he was just being stubborn. He died at home, today."
