Michael "Mike" Bell (March 18, 1971 – December 14, 2008) was an American professional wrestler who worked for the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) and Extreme Championship Wrestling (ECW) as Mike "Mad Dog" Bell.[2] He is the brother of Mark Bell and Chris Bell (Director of Bigger, Stronger, Faster).

Professional wrestling career[edit]

Bell worked as a jobber for the WWF during the early 1990s and appeared on Monday Night Raw, though he never had a contract with the company.[3] He later worked with ECW and appeared at the Mid-Hudson Civic Center.

Bell was well known amongst the wrestling community after an incident with professional wrestler Perry Saturn during a dark match in the WWF. During the match, Bell attempted a snapmare armdrag on Perry, which left Perry "out on [his] feet" leading to a legitimate assault by Saturn on Mike Bell. Neither sustained serious injury.

Personal life[edit]

Bell, who had a history with substance abuse, was featured in the documentary Bigger, Stronger, Faster along with his two brothers.[3] On December 14, 2008, he was found dead at a rehabilitation facility in Costa Mesa, California.[3] Bell was 37 years old.
