  1. As a long time wrestling fan, I followed Matt Bourne’s career long before he adopted the persona of Doink the Clown, beginning with his stints in WCCW and WCW. He was an extremely tough competitor, and a great worker. My condolences to the family and friends of Matt Bourne.

  2. Just an FYI, Matt would have turned 56 this year. I , having been a long time friend of his would like the author to correct the spelling of Matt’s name…Matt “Borne” Osborne.
