Bobby Duncum Jr found dead

By JOHN MOLINARO -- SLAM! Wrestling

The wrestling world suffered another loss today as it was revealed that former WCW star Bobby Duncum Jr. died early Monday morning of unknown causes. He was 34.

 A local TV station in his hometown, just outside of Austin, TX reported that Duncum was found dead by his roommate.

 Duncum was a second generation star. His father, Bobby Duncam Sr, was a major wrestling star in the 70s and early 80s, often challenging then-WWF World Champion Bob Backlun for the title.

 North American wrestling fans would best remember Duncam from his stint in WCW as one half of the Texas Rednecks tag-team with Curt Henning. He was still under contract with WCW, recovering from a shoulder operation he had in the Fall.

 Duncum had a wealth of international wrestling experience as a regular competitor for All Japan Pro Wrestling. While there, Duncum occasionaly teamed with wrestling legend Stan Hansen.

 Duncum also wrestled for Paul Heyman's Extreme Championship Wrestling promotion.
