The Internet can be a very positive place. You can find out nearly anything you have a question about with a simple “Google” search (or “Bing” and so many other search engines). Need to find a video, a place to go out to eat tonight, and so much more, it’s all there on the Internet!
The Internet can be a very ugly place. People can be vicious and tear someone’s character or business to pieces in a matter of a few keyboard strokes. They can also write about people dying when no confirmation of that person’s demise has been documented.
For the past few hours I have been called on my telephone, emailed, recieved text messages, all telling me that Sir Oliver Humperdink has died. I don’t know what Internet site posted that “news” first but it’s all over the place now.
I have checked into this situation with sources VERY close to Sir Oliver’s family and been told that he is still alive but hospitalized. Until my direct contact tells me otherwise no news of his death will be printed on the pages of 1Wrestling.com.
With respect to Sir Oliver’s privacy and family how dare people “report” his death without a credible source confirming their story first. How can anyone do that in good conscience?
As soon as I have any word regarding this so very unfortunate situation you won’t see any updates about Sir Oliver here. I will — as we all should — keep praying for this iconic character who means so much to his family, friends, and you — the fans!
