Some sad news from the wrestling world has come about as Nelson Frazier, Jr. - known as Mabel, Big Daddy V, and Viscera - has passed away. Wrestlezone reported that Frazier died of a massive heart attack and passed on Tuesday, Feb. 18, 2014.

Nelson Frazier, Jr. was just 42-years-old, and he just turned that age on Feb. 14, 2014.

He wrestled in WWE for numerous years and during many different eras. He first appeared in the mid-nineties as Mabel and was part of a tag team called The Harlem Knights before their name was changed to Men on a Mission.

Later in his career, he wrestled as Viscera and was a part of the Ministry of Darkness stable led by the Undertaker. After a short stint, he left and came back again in 2004.

Once he returned, he moved around from show to show and was eventually repacked for the new ECW brand as Big Daddy V. He last wrestled for WWE back in March of 2008 when he lost to CM Punk.

Big Daddy V's passing was confirmed on Twitter by ECW legend Tommy Dreamer:

"I am shocked & so sad. Mabel, Viscera, Big Daddy V (Nelson Frazaier) passed away. He was a good friend."

Frazier's passing was also confirmed by a respected pro wrestling agent by the name of Eric Simms. He said he had spoken with Frazier's wife who said her husband passed of "a massive heart attack."
