Former Ecw and WWE wrestler Balls Mahoney passes away at 44 years old

13 April 2016 1:22 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

We are saddened to report this morning that former Ecw and WWE wrestler Jonathan Rechner, better known as Balls Mahoney, has passed away.

Rechner had a run in Smokey Mountain Wrestling as Boo Radley before having a brief – but rather infamous – performance in WWF as the evil Xanta Klaus. He found fame and success among wrestling fans when he went to Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling where he wrestled as Balls Mahoney. He would become known for his vicious chairshots and would have brutal matches with the likes of Taz, Masato Tanaka, Lance Storm and Axl Rotten. So violent were his matches with Rotten that the two formed a tag team called The Chair Swinging Freaks, and they feuded with The Dudley Boyz.

Mahoney was brought in by WWE as part of their Ecw revival and he would have feuds with Snitsky, Big Daddy V and The New Breed. »
