Balls Mahoney was watching Jeopardy and answering trivia questions moments before losing consciousness Tuesday evening. This is according to his wife, who says she’s still unsure what caused his death.
Mahoney’s wife Gayle told ProWrestlingSheet.com that they were watching television Tuesday night when he made a move to get more comfortable on the couch by laying on his side.
Moments later though, Gayle noticed Mahoney was unconscious and immediately dialed 9-1-1 before attempting to revive him with CPR. Once medics arrived however, they said Mahoney had already passed.
Gayle noted that Mahoney took a bad fall last week and was unable to walk very well because of it. However, she’s unsure if the events are related at this point.
A GoFundMe page was set up Wednesday morning to assist the family with funeral costs. The service will take place next week in New Jersey at O’Brien Funeral Home and fans are invited to attend.
