Shotzi Blackheart’s step father passed away yesterday, a few days after she revealed that he was in a coma.
“This is extremely painful. I see all the caring messages and I really appreciate them but I am just far too overwhelmed to respond to them all,” she wrote in a long message on Instagram.
Shotzi said that she had great relationships with both her biological and step dads and her step dad came into her life when she was just four years old.
“My step dad came into my life when I was 4 and he made it a point to become good friends with my biological father and they became best friends, brothers. He was that fun guy that everyone wanted to be friends with. The party guy,” she wrote.
She recounted how her step dad taught her everything, from riding a bike to appreciating the beauty in life.
“Dad I miss making brownies with you, I miss our long conversations that went on until sunrise, I miss your Donald Duck impression and I miss hearing you call me butthead. RIP DAD I love you sososo much!”
Blackheart wrestled at NXT Takeover: Stand & Deliver the day after he fell into a coma.
