Melissa Coates, aka Sabu’s ‘Super Genie’, Passes Away At Age 50

According to a recent report by Carmine Sabia, Melissa Coates – also known as Super Genie – has passed away. 

Sabia mentioned the passing on social media on Wednesday, saying that he had spoken to ECW legendary superstar Sabu. Another tweet from the Cauliflower Alley Club Twitter account seemed to reference the news, penning a heartfelt goodbye to the legendary figure. 

Coates was perhaps best known for appearances in independent circuits starting in 2011. Starting in 2014, Coates began managing Sabu, and took on the persona of “The Super Genie.” The duo continued to work together for some time, and eventually began a real-life relationship with one another. 

A cause of death is currently unknown, although Coates did her have leg amputated last year due to blood clot issues. For now, those at WrestleZone will keep Sabu and Coates’ families in our thoughts.
