WZ reader Nick has sent in word that TNA star Matt Hardy’s name has been removed from the Alumni Section of WWE.com.

Thanks to Drake McGruder for sending in the following: Memphisport.com is reporting that Memphis Wrestling’s Guy Coffey has passed away, reportedly taking his own life. The site notes, "Not a lot of information is available at this time, but it’s been reported Guy Coffey (age 88 or 89) apparently took his own life early Saturday, January 8, 2011. According to people close to the situation, there was a suicide note and a gun by his body.  “Mr. Coffey” as he was known to everyone was never a wrestler but worked behind the scenes for Memphis Wrestling for many decades.  Prior to that, Mr. Coffey ran the old Ellis Auditorium from the late 1940s till he retired from there in the early 1980s (it later became the Cook Convention Center). After retiring from the Auditorium, Mr. Coffey worked full time for Memphis Wrestling behind the scenes."
