John Kronus was found dead today at his girlfriend's apartment in New Hampshire. At this point, no other details are available.

 

Kronus & Perry Saturn, as The Eliminators, were pushed by Paul Heyman as "The Best Tag Team in the World," during much of 1996 and 1997, as multiple-time ECW tag champions. New Jack & Kronus also held the title.

Wow. Timing. Damn.

 

 

Thoughts that come to mind:

 

1. Someone stop Kevin Sullivan, he got another one!

 

2. Kronus was pretty well known as a druggie, so if this was from an OD, it adds even more fuel to the current media fire.

 

3. I guess the oft-planned, never-happened Eliminators reunion is off.

 

4. Perry Saturn got shot three times. And broke his neck. In separate instances. Yet it's his partner that dies first.

 

5. How long til the tape traders come out with their Best of Kronus comps? They've been all over that shit with guys like Bigelow and Awesome.

2. An OD is probably a safe assumption, especially since most people have stated that Kronus wasn't the sharpest knife in the drawer BEFORE he started taking drugs.

 

3. I thought Saturn was pretty much retired after the injuries he sustained breaking up that attempted rape a few years back

 

5. They'll just recycle the Best Of The Eliminators set because Kronus' work outside the team was sub-par by most standards.

Sad.

 

Kronus was one of the original "OMFG DUDE IS CRAZY AND DOES FLIPS EVEN THOUGH HE'S KINDA FAT!" guys. I was a big Eliminators mark for a year or so in the mid/late 90's.

Rest In Peace, big John.

I simply remember all those crazy highspots that brought a smile to my face 10 years ago and the fact that he looked to be having a lot of fun; that's how I'll remember him and am thankful that he entertained a lot of strangers for several years there. I'm very sorry to hear about his bad habits and hope and pray that he's in a better place and that his family will be alright.

Statement by family of John Kronus

 

This was written to help clear any unanswered or missled info that related to Kronus's life and passing so that any questions about Jon (our son, fiancee', brother, and uncle,) would be posted and answered correctly.

 

Jon was a father to his nine year old son named Gage. He was 38 years old. He was 6'3" and weighed 300lbs.

 

He passed away on July 18th, 2007. He was born in Everett, Massachusetts January 13, 1969. His last name is

spelled Caiazzo pronunced (kih-ahtz-so).His son Gage, was his life. He talked to him everyday and saw his son as much as he could. He wished it was more. He was engaged to be married this year to his long time fiancee, Brandy, a true soul mate. He passed away peacefully in his sleep.

 

He had an enlarged heart, known to be capable of stopping at anytime. Our family has a long history of heart problems. His untimely death came as an extreme shock to our family. We

will miss the way he made us laugh, the funny things he said, the stupid things he did (lol), his famous bismarque dance, his BBQ cooking (his signture steak tips he grilled anytime of the day but his favorite time to cook was 2 a.m.), and his bubbly personality that entertained us at family gatherings. He loved being a wrestler. His athletic ability was far beyond that of a regular athlete. Up until this year he could still do a full

split to the floor (ouch).

 

When his son was born, he was motivated to continue wrestling, to provide Gage with everything he wanted. He waswell known in Massachusetts and New Hampshire for his outgoing personality as well as within the wrestling circle. His wrestling family has been a great comfort in being there for us. We realize how important Jon was to them.

 

He will be greatly missed by his family,friends,and fans. But we're happy to know that when God took him, his father was there and greeted him above.

 

If you have any questions you can email us at [email protected]

He will be waked at Rocco Funeral Home in Everett, Massachusetts on Wednesday July 25th from 4pm to 8pm. The funeral will be Thursday July 26th at 9am. In Lieu of flowers, the family

request donations to assist in the burial.

 

Jenn Caiazzo P.O. Box 408 Tilton NH, 03276.
