As reported by the WrestlingObserver.com today:

Mike "Johnny Grunge" Durham was pronounced dead on arrival at an Atlanta area hospital this morning.

The only available details were he was at a friend's house in Peachtree City, GA, and was gasping for air and rushed to the hospital. The preliminary diagnosis from the hospital is that it was said to have to do with complications from sleep apnea.

Grunge and the late Rocco Rock (Ted Petty), as the tag team of Public Enemy, were the first major stars created by ECW in a program against The Funk Brothers. They became ECW's most popular act, to the point they were subject to a bidding war of sorts between WCW and WWF. However, taken out of the ECW environment, they weren't as successful.

Grunge, whose age is believed to be 39, was said by friends to have never been the same since Petty's death.
---------------------------------------------

That's pretty sad - both Rocco and Johnny were fun to watch in ECW.

Sounds like he died WAY too young....that's a shame. You'd be suprised how serious of a condition that sleep apnea can be....I've worked several unattended deaths that were the result of that condition over the last 11 plus years.

Tack him onto the looooooong list of wrestlers who died too young. Such a shame. The Public Enemy were a great tag team and had some classic matches.

That is sad and a shame, he was so young. (I didn't even know Rocco Rock had died). They were a great tag team. R.I.P. Public Enemy.
