Stevie Lee Dead - Professional Wrestler & 'Jackass' Star Dies at 54

Stevie Lee has sadly died.

The professional wrestler, who also went by the name Puppet the Psycho Dwarf, passed away at the age of 54, his family confirmed via a GoFundMe page on Thursday (September 10).

The family did not note a cause of death, saying only that he “unexpectedly passed away” at his home on Wednesday morning (September 9).

“He was beloved by many and has many friends that were family, fans that adored him, but only his brother Jim left to take care of final arrangements. Puppet has put smiles across the world with his hardcore attitude and lifestyle,” the page reads.

Donations will go to his brother, Jim Richardson, for funeral costs.

Stevie began his career on NWA: Total Nonstop Action in 2002, and created the Half-Pint Brawlers organization, which led to a reality series on Spike TV.

He also appeared in Johnny Knoxville‘s 2010 film, Jackass 3D, and in Oz the Great and Powerful and American Horror Story: Freak Show.

Our thoughts are with Stevie Lee‘s loved ones at this difficult time.
