According to TMZ Sports, bodybuilder Dallas “Big Country” McCarver passed away around at his home yesterday evening. The twenty-six year old was in a relationship with Raw Superstar Dana Brooke.

TMZ spoke to Brooke who revealed that McCarver was found unconscious last night around midnight by a friend shortly after a phone conversation between herself and McCarver. He was transported to a nearby hospital where he was pronounced dead. Local law enforcement believes there are no signs of foul play, and Brooke claims McCarver showed no signs of intending to harm himself, as it appears the cause of death could be from McCarver choking on his food.

The last words he told Brooke on the phone were “I love you. Goodbye.” McCarver had a bit of a health scare last March during the 2017 Arnold Classic Australia where he collapsed onstage. As of late, however, he has seemed to be doing much better.

Dana also took to Instagram to honor McCarver:

❤️So here it goes, I'll try & be short– aug 22 the lord received another angel, who happens 2 be my LIFE- MY Dallas the one WHO ONLY UNDERSTOOD ME! I can speak on the behalf of his family– the love and support you all are showing for him & us is OVERWHELMING!! Dallas would always tell me "just keep swimming his little pengutimous (hippo mixed with penguin)" he would tell everyone the same — just keep swimming, keep moving through life and he will be your angel above!! He had a way with making people laugh!! Dallas was an exceptional body builder, but I didn't see him for that .. I saw him for HIM AND HIS HEART!! He is the best individual I have ever met– my ying to my yang.. finished my sentences and knew what I was thinking before I'd say it!! We had it all figured out – new WWE superstar "Big country" & "country strong" mixed tag team!!! — you were my life , you are my life, I still smell u and feel ur presence, NEVER LEAVE MY SIDE — like I have always asked; and u said NO NEVER Mrs. McCarver — I had your back and I knew you had mine!! Your our angel– STAYED TUNED FOR A NONPROFIT I have started — and as well as a memorial service as details will be out soon! #rip #myangel #mydallas #dallasmccarver #dteam #raw #ifbb #bodybuilding #losingalovedone #myheart #wwe #justkeepswimming #soulmate #swolemate #bestfriend #love #pray #faith #staystrong

    So sorry for your loss! :(

  • Carolution

    how horrible.

  • OMG! Poor dana, I’m so sad for her. My prayers are with Dana and her boyfriend’s family.

  • Dylan Gutierrez

    Poor Dana. :(
    I wish I could give her a hug. She must be devastated. Losing someone whether a family, friend, partner, child is always the worst thing a person can experience. I hope her family, his family and her friends/fellow co-workers give her the strength and love she needs right now.

  • Windyhawaii

    You know people on diva dirt go at each other a lot but when something like this happens it’s nice to see everyone comment positive things and no hate what so ever. Prayers are with Dana ??

  • Marshy

    Family, friends, her co workers and God needs to put their hands around Dana at this time, cause no one should never lose the person that truly love especially at young age. Please let the WWE give Dana all the time that she will need to grieve and whenever the time that she will need to come back.

  • NoWayHoeSay

    I thought she was still with Dolph ?

    • Stuart McKay

      What a disrespectful comment to right on an article about someone losing their life. Especially adding laughing emojis. Vile!

    • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

      Nobody is laughing.

  • Summer_Slay #?aryn?errell

    WTF choked on food i cant believe this :( He was so young too 26 years old only and from what i read he was set to debut as her tag team partner. Life is so unfair :c I hope she’s ok.

  • PYM #TakeoverSmackdown

    So sad. She really loved him. I followed her on Snapchat and she would always be posting about him.

  • Stef’

    I saw her post on Instagram and I though damn she was on RAW in a shitty backstage segment the day before her oyfriend died…
    She has alwaays been so positive despite all the flaws she faced, her career never took off, she ended in the last position at the Arnold Classic and now this…

    I’m really thinking about her.

  • Jorge Hernandez Moran

    Literally shock when i saw this. Sending strenght your way Dana. My heart is with her.

  • Wicked Emma

    My condolences goes out to his family

  • YonceLuvsDivas

    My prayers go out to Dana and the family of her boyfriend.

  • Raekon

    Heard this yesterday and got very sad. I really know how it is to lose a very loved one.
    All the best to Dana, their families and friends! Too Young to die. R.I.P. :(
