Tony "Ludvig Borga" Helme died ten years ago today. A former star of Finland's version of Gladiators, a failed WWF main eventer (and apparently one of the most unpopular guys backstage in wrestling history) and member of Finnish parliament. He was elected to parliament under a pledge to rid Finland of drug addicts. Become a drug addict himself in later years, he made good on his promise by shooting himself through the head with a revolver.
