Vern Troyer passed away on 4/21 at the age of 49-years-old. During his life, he was able to make millions laugh with his part in the Austin Powers movies but he will also forever have a place in the WWE Universe.
Troyer was guest General Manager of Raw in November 2009 where he had the chance to roast The Miz. As it turns out, The A-Lister never forgot that time he shared the stage on Raw with Vern Troyer and he sent out a heartfelt message thanking him for the laughs.
WWE even sent out their own news update on the matter. This is a very sad event and through it, many people are taking the opportunity today to enjoy Vern Troyer’s career and everything he gave to us.
