Should Have Been Huge: Sweet And Sour Larry Sweeney

I am not going to sit here and lie to you and tell you that I knew about Larry Sweeney and followed him from day one until he passed away.  Until he died I had no idea who he was, didn't even know his name, didn't know he existed until Chris Hero tweeted that Sweeney had passed away. Intrigued, I went to Youtube and searched for something, anything that would tell me something about this guy beyond Wikipedia. It was like finding out that there is something awesome was out there and everyone knew about it except for you, and you found out about it only after it had went away forever. Watching his promos and matches made me want to see newer and better stuff which led to the sad realization that that would never happen because in a struggle with bi-polar disorder Sweeney committed suicide.
