A former World Wrestling Entertainer (WWE), Super Genie Melissa has been announced dead by a friend in an emotional post on Facebook.
It would be recalled that, Super Genie had one of her legs amputated in a life-saving procedure but she eventually gave up the ghost.
The friend revealed her family had requested her to make the announcement public on their behalf, with the friend urging everyone to respect family’s privacy as they mourn their kin. The post reads: “This may the hardest post I have ever made. Just got word from Terry ‘Sabu’ Brunk that Super Genie Melissa Coates has passed away this afternoon.”
This announcement was followed by a similar update by the Cauliflower Alley Club, a non-profit known to take care of former full-time wrestlers. Cauliflower posted: “We send out our sincerest condolences to her family, friends and fans. May they find comfort in the memories left behind during this most difficult time.R.I.P Melissa.”
Her death came months after a GoFundMe page was created to raise funds for the amputation of her leg after it emerged arteries supplying blood to her left lower leg were obstructed by blood clots.
