More details on the sudden death of Curt Hennig are coming into the light today. It is being reported that Hennig mentioned to others on the night before his death (Sunday, February 9th) that he was having severe gas pains. Mickey Jay, a referee, invited Hennig to breakfast on the day of his death but Hennig declined and decided to remain in bed.
When the wrestlers for the show Jimmy Hart was putting on showed up around 1 p.m., Hennig was not among them. Davie "The Cuban Assassin" Sierra and his wife headed to the hotel where Hennig was staying and knocked on his door but recieved no answer. They then asked the maid to open the door and that was when they found Curt's body.
