The World Reacts to the Death of Blade Braxton

We lost one of our Fruitcakes as Blade Braxton passed away this Sunday. Needless to say many took the untimely death pretty hard, particularly online ( has a piece abut his passing), particularly on social media.

Blade starred in several indie horror movies like "The Girl Who Played With The Dead" & "Hole In The Wall". Some were made by Troma Entertainment, widely known for such works as "The Toxic Avenger", "Surf Nazis Must Die", and his most notable work in "Return To Return To Nuke 'Em High!". They made a tribute video for Blade. 

The man behind Troma himself, legendary Lloyd Kaufman, who personally made him a part of his Troma Team, had a few words to say about Blade's passing:

Blade did a syndicated TV Show called "Drive-In Movie Maniacs" with Terrible Tim. Here they also had a few words:

In November 2019, Wrestlecrap was at AEW's Podcast convention "Starrcast". Members of Blade's panel ("Wrestling with Wregret's" Brian Zane, "Botchamania's" Gregg Maffeww & The Blue Meanie) also had their words:
Blade's voice was heard not just with the fans, but within pro wrestling itself, such as in this tweet from ROH commentator Ian Riccaboni:
And another from ECW Alumni Joel Gertner:
People who were once close to Blade were shocked about his passing, but were also impressed by his legacy:

Blade Braxton left an Alien Ham-shaped hole that no one is going to fill for a long time.

Before this column ends I have one more tweet for you, and it comes from someone close, real close. Angrymark's own Stevie J recalls a time when he traveled with Blade. If there's one take away at who Blade is, then it is this tweet here:

Blade Braxton will be missed.
