Melissa Coates, who most recently worked as Sabu’s manager Super Genie, died on Wednesday at age 50. Coates had a leg amputated last year as a result of blood clots, but the cause of death has not been officially announced.
Powell’s POV: Coates was a bodybuilder who made the transition to pro wrestling. She was trained by Killer Kowalski and spent time in WWE’s developmental system. Coates was also a participant in two seasons of the television show “Extreme Dodgeball” on Game Show Network. My condolences to her family and friends.
