Damn man. Close to the bone. Such a shame
Goodness. Don't know what to say. He seems(ed) like such a great guy with insider info.
R.I.P. Frankie. Shocked.
His ballz are hot in a better place now.
He was the only guy I ever really wrote a DM to here, wishing for him to get better. he was thankful and responded really kindly.
whoa whoa whoa, I’m stunned. RIP brother. I just hope it was more peaceful than not. Always seemed like a good dude not willing to entertain the drama but always willing to give a sincere response to anyone’s questions. He was one of my favorite posters here. Damn, such a bummer.
Has anyone discovered what actually happened?
Frankie figured me out right away and immediately we were friends. Talked with him a lot on the open forum and via PM.
Hours before his death, he actually tagged me and jokingly accused me of being the guy who tackled Bret Hart.
One of a kind guy. Great mind and great heart. There will never be another like him.
RIP my brother
If this is true, RIP man, always liked you
Oh man, I’m sad to hear this news. I truly enjoyed Frankie’s thoughtful posts and humor here. He always had some awesome intel and insight into the workings of the sport. He will be missed by many.
RIP brother Frankie
I always liked his threads with numbers and stats
RIP Frankie. You will be missed.
Damn... RIP Frankie
Crap. Don't know how I missed this thread yesterday. I'm crushed. He was a great guy and added so much to this site - both from his former MMA media days as well as his principled positions. He opened up once over PM and really appreciated his candor. He will be missed for sure. RIP.
During the WrestleMania thread last night was when we ( @Bozy @ShakaSway @MoomBah and I) found out about Frankie and his passing. I think I speak for all of us when I saw we're fucking crushed over it. We had just been talking to him during the Hall of Fame the night before as @conor mcgregor nut hugger mentioned. He was saying that he wasn't sure the hospital WiFi would work for Mania. So when we found out why he hadn't joined us, well, yeah.
Rest in peace, Frankie I hope the afterlife really is everything they say it is. Thanks for being part of our lives.
This is awful news! Frankie seemed like such a genuine guy.
Remember when people thought he was a UFC shill? A bunch of us had to vouch for him and even still he got flak for a few months after.
We were pm’ing back and forth about the ridiculousness of the situation on Sherdog. It had been a long time since I had seen a reaction like that to a new member on any site. Good times.
Rest In Peace brother. At least your PPV’s are now free.
Oh Man... this is upsetting and shocking/weird. I am new to the forums and he was one of the first people to interact with me, joke and be cool. Literally just had a mini back n forth with him just a day or two ago. It's surreal someone is here one min, then gone the next. Life is so short man and you just never know when your time is up. Cherish every damn day, and do whatever the hell you want in life.
RIP FrankieNYC, condolences to the people who knew him and were his friends.
my heart hurts.
frankie was a awesome person.
this sucks big time.
happy sails bro
my heart hurts for you.
you were a cool dude.
I was a cunt to this guy originally and, as usual, my cuntishness was mostly unjustified. But I always posted in his threads because he posted interesting content consistently. Which means that the forum will be worse off without him.
Still seems crazy reading this.... It's awesome to see the positive way he impacted this community, but this is such a loss.
Another one for the purple name club, hopefully the last for a long long while.
I know he was a huge pro wrestling fan, so sad and weird he would die on the morning of Wrestlemania
Seems like there's nothing but love for Frankie coming from everywhere
Really mind blowing to read this and sorry I missed it til now. @FrankieNYC was a great poster, one of the best we had. Sorry we never met.
