Stevie Lee, better known as Puppet “The Psycho Dwarf” from TNA and the short-lived show “Half Pint Brawlers” on Spike TV, has passed away.
The news of his passing yesterday was shared on Facebook. Friends of the wrestler have since put together a GoFundMe to help with the funeral arrangements.
Lee wrestled a few times for NWA: Total Nonstop Action in the weekly pay-per-view era. He even kinda-sorta wrestled Tom Arnold once during an event that was done in collaboration between Fox Sports Net and TNA (seen at the bottom of this article).
He also famously pulled a gun on Jeff Jarrett in the ring once (in storyline, not for real).
For those unfamiliar with Half Pint Brawlers, the six-episode series aired in 2010 and centered around Lee running a little person wrestling company. The group were also featured in Jackass 3D in a scene where they got into a bar fight with Wee Man.
After the show’s cancelation, Lee continued to work in wrestling and entertainment – with roles in “Oz The Great and Powerful” and “American Horror Story.”
Our condolences go out to his friends and family.
