WWE legends pay tribute to the man known as Viscera/Mabel
Once crowned King of the Ring, the man known as Big Daddy V, Viscera and Mabel, Nelson Frazier Jr. has passed away
At just 43-years-old, WWE wrestler Nelson Frazier Jr. has passed away after a suspected heart attack, according to the LA Times and the WWE.
Depending on your vintage, you will remember Frazier as either King Mabel, when he entered the WWE as part of a tag team with Mo, or later with Undertaker's Ministry of Darkness as Viscera. Later on again, he became known as Big Daddy V, and the wrestling world has been saddened by the news of his passing, with many of the biggest names in the industry tweeting their memories of the big man.

Never the most athletic of men, Big Vis will be remembered for his high impact moves like the big splash and his chokebomb, and judging by the tributes, he will be missed mostly for his big heart.
