Death has knocked on WWE family door as Tom Lister Jr popularly known as Zeus passed away at the age of 62.

The American wrestler who was also famous for playing the bullying Deebo character in the “Friday” films, died in the early hours of Thursday, December 10.

He was said to have been found unconscious in his Califonia home but never made it beyond that scene according to reports from his manager Cindy Cowan.

She added that her client tested positive for the deadly coronavirus earlier in the year but he beat the virus as reported by AP.

But a week ago, Zeus was reported to have been struck by another illness as he had difficulties breathing but never survived this one.

The publication reveals that the cause of his death is yet to be disclosed as the authorities are looking into what could have happened to the late superstar. Cowan said:

“He was a gentle giant. He had a smile as broad as you could imagine. He’s going to be missed by so many. We’re all devastated.”

One of Zeus’ best moments was during the 1989 Survivor Series when he finished off The Hulkster in a brilliant show of strength as part of Ted DiBiase’s Million Dollar Team.
