Nelson Frazier Jr., the former WWE wrestler who went under the ring names of Mabel, Viscera and Big Daddy V, died of a heart attack at the age of 43. The wrestler was popular with the WWE fans through the years while in the ring with many of the greats from the wrestling organization. The news of Frazier's death was released today according to the L.A. Times on Feb. 19.

When Frazier first came to the WWE, he was Mabel, the name he used for his spot on the “Men on a Mission” tag team. Later he took on the name of Viscera, when he became a member of the Undertaker’s “Ministry of Darkness.” He made his third and final stage name change to “Big Daddy V,” which is the name many remember the giant for.

The WWE world has taken to social networks today to say good bye to the man who many saw as a gentle giant when not in the ring. Tommy Dreamer, MVP and Real King Regal were just a few of the WWE wrestlers who tweeted a good bye to their friend today.
