Fall of a Giant

On October 23, 2000, Yokozuna died from heart failure in his room at the Moat House Hotel, Liverpool, England while he was on an independent wrestling tour in Europe.[1] It was speculated in the days following his passing that lifelong arachnophobe Yokozuna may have suffered a heart attack due to the shock of seeing a spider in his hotel room. The tour promoter Brian Dixon said that Yokozuna had a clause written into his contract to "have his dressing rooms and hotel rooms swept 30 minutes before he entered them to make sure there were no spiders".[39] Yokozuna died at the weight of 770 lb (350 kg)
