UPDATE: Dallas McCarver Apparently Choked On Food

WWE superstar Dana Brooke McCarver’s girlfriend told TMZ, the 26-year-old McCarver was found unconscious Monday evening by a friend at his home shortly after they spoke on the phone.

Dana says McCarver told her he was about to make dinner and the last thing he said to her was, “I love you. Goodbye.”

Dana Brooke says the cause of death is believed to be choking on food and she is being told there are no signs of foul play and it does not appear McCarver was trying to harm himself.

On Monday earlier McCarver had worked out in the gym and seemed to be doing just fine … no signs of any medical or health problem while hitting a chest press with 160 lbs dumbbells.

This video clip was posted 20 hours ago.

Brooke tells McCarver’s fans is to stay strong!!!  that’s what he would want.

Dallas McCarver was a highly talented, extremely respected, young bodybuilder.

    Well it makes sense for them to try and blame something else instead of what alot of people will blame, drugs. If it came down to that it would hurt the Olympia possibly and the sport. This guy was up and coming what a shame 🙁

    • Dude ain’t gonna die at 26 from PEDs be real lol

    • Avatar Sam Sarvis says:

      I am being real and you’re off point.. Referring to diuretics and insulin which can get a pro into trouble if not done just right regardless of age. There’s other scenarios also but my point was most ignorant people will blame “drugs” and it can reflect negatively on the sport.

    • Avatar RG Bowen says:

      Yeah I am sure the coroner will cover up cause of death for the Olympia ???? gtfoh
