So many memories!

Matt Osborne, better known as Doink The Clown, was found dead in Texas. He was 55 years old.

One of the WWE's most popular wrestlers from the 90's, Doink The Clown continued wrestling independently after he left the organization.

Most recently he could be seen at wrestling conventions and autograph sessions.

Here's what the WWE said in a statement:

"Reports indicate that Matt Osborne, aka the original Doink the Clown, has passed away. A rugged brawler in promotions like Mid-South Wrestling and World Championship Wrestling, Osborne made a major impact in WWE under the greasepaint of a prankster named Doink — one of the most enduring personas of the early ’90s. WWE is saddened by the news of Osborne's passing. Our deepest condolences go out to Osborne’s family, friends and fans."

It's obviously ridiculously sad that he died at the age of 55. That is way TOO young, and we our hearts go out to his friends and family.

Hopefully he's now in that big wrestling ring in the sky!

RIP, sir.
