Professional wrestling is known for its characters' gimmicks. Some work, while others are regrettable and forgettable.
One of the more bizarre characters that somehow took off was that of Doink the Clown, who started out with a seriously twisted side and eventually morphed back and forth as wrestling personalities do.
The Toronto Sun reports that Matt Borne, aka Doink the Clown, passed away Friday in Texas. He was 56.
The WWE released a statement offering its condolences on Borne's reported death.
