We had received a report last night that independent wrestler D.C. “Mad Dog” Drake had passed away. The report on his passing was confirmed by Paul Heyman, Gabe Sapolsky, and Rob Feinstein of RF Video.
I received an email from Drake’s sister Carlee Stackhouse earlier this evening stating that the story is false. She wrote, “Don is NOT dead. He is alive and well. I am his sister and spoke to him after hear this rumor.”
ProWrestling.net reports that she posted a similar message on her Facebook page, writing, “For those who happen to be hearing false rumors, my brother Don Drake, a/k/a D.C. Mad Dog Drake, is NOT dead.”
We apologize for the original report and have deleted that article.
