Van Dyke had been hospitalized after suffering a heart attack during a Ronin Pro Wrestling show. He had told his tag team partner that he was not feeling well and suffered a heart attack after he tagged out. CPR was administered and he was rushed to the hospital. He suffered two more heart attacks before being put into a medically induced coma.

Apparently, he suffered a punctured lung and broke a rib from when they were administering CPR on him. The news of his passing was confirmed by his family on Facebook.
