Former WWE wrestler Sean O'Haire reportedly hung himself inside his own home on Sept. 9 causing his instantaneous death.

A police report quoted by Hollywood Life revealed that O'Haire's body was found hanging from his bedpost with a rope tied around his neck.

TMZ noted that O'Haire was discovered at around 7:30 a.m. by his father who immediately called 911 for help. Investigators reportedly said that they already ruled out foul play adding that they are still waiting for toxicology reports to better explain the circumstances prior to this apparent suicide.

The 43-year-old O'Haire competed professionally in the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and World Championship Wrestling (WCW) for a span of six years.

According to Hollywood Life, O'Haire crossed into the MMA in September 2004, ventured into professional kickboxing after, then also tried becoming a hair stylist later on.

His transition to various industries, however, was also coupled with arrests and legal battles which haunted most of his remaining years. In 2006, it was reported that the former wrestler was arrested for allegedly assaulting a lady inside Club Hypnotic two years prior but was declared not guilty.

A year after, he was also reportedly involved in a brawl in Hilton Head which allegedly caused fractures on his face, leaving him with partial visual impairment.

Hollywood Life added that O'Haire was also arrested in Georgia after reports surfaced that he choked his girlfriend but again he was declared not guilty.

After learning of his demise, the WWE released a statement extending their condolences to O'Haire's family, friends and fans.

In his Twitter account, former WWE wrestler, Billy Kidman, whose career shone alongside with O'Haire, expressed how sad he is for his friend's passing.

"Doesn't matter how many times it happens, it never gets easier. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. #RIPSeanOHaire," Kidman said on his tweet.

Social media was also flooded with message of condolences for the former wrestler's family. This included independent wrestler, Adam Pearce, who shared on his Facebook page the friendship he had with O'Hare at the time when he injured his arm.

"He took care of me, never touching my left arm, and really served to help me look better than I should have. And even though I ended up not signing WCW's contract, I have never ever forgotten what he did. Godspeed, Sean O'Haire. Thank you again, and rest in peace," Pearce's post read.

According to a Toronto Sun article, O'Haire will always be remembered for his presence in the WCW especially "towards the end of the company's existence."
