Dave Meltzer is reporting that Thomas Couch, best known as Tommy Rogers from the 80s and the tag team of The Fantastics, passed away this morning in Honolulu, where he was living since 2006.

Couch, who recently turned 54, had been having legal troubles in recent years stemming from fighting. He was to be sentenced tomorrow over a fight with police officers and feared a long prison stay.

At this moment, the cause of circumstances of his death are pending. There was no note left, and according to one of his best friends, he had been in good spirits in recent days. He was found at about 3 a.m. by his roommate in a chair in front of a computer, gurgling. The roommate called 911, but he was unable to be revived.
