Bison Smith passed away on November 22nd 2011 in Puerto Rico due to heart complications at the age of a mere 38 yrs old.
I had the pleasure to watch the big man wrestle in person for Pro Wrestling NOAH back in 2008 right here in the UK. Bison can also be seen in the Beyond The Mat documentary when it shows All Pro Wrestling where Bison got a lot of his training.
Not overly known for working the American wrestling scene, Bison made his name in Japan for NOAH where he was one of the top ganjin's.
Pro-wrestling has lost another star and at such a young age. People should check out Bison on Colt Cabana's Art of Wrestling podcast either on http://welovecolt.com or iTunes
R.I.P Big man.
