-- Yesterday it was reported that former Tri-State Wrestling Alliance and NWF champion "Mad Dog" D.C. Drake had passed away. Thankfully this is not true. Carlee Stackhouse, Drake's sister, has reached out to let people know that Drake is alive and well. A number of people who worked with and were close with Drake, had tweeted about his passing. The initial report's origin seems to start with a former Philadelphia-based promoter, who made the comments on his Facebook page.
