Mike and me met at a bachelor party, he was such a blast! We went out for a couple dinners and beach walks, he was so interesting! I miss his bleach blond triangle above his baby carrot, he was so California. Hang ten Mike, hang ten.
I was one of Mike's first personal training clients when he worked at Gold's Gym in Newburgh,NY. I was impressed with his dedication to my training and the joy that he got in my accomplishments too. He had a gentle side that I got to see often. I will never forget him and alot of his advise. I love working out and Mike was the man that planted that seed. I still miss you Mike.
RIP Mike Bell. He was a great man & always made people laugh.
Thanks for the hard great work
Will always remember the warm smile on Mike's face that always lit up the room!!
My heart goes out to all of the Bell family.

I recently watched "bigger, Stronger, Faster*" and like others I wanted to see how the Bell's where doing. Im very sorry for your loss.. :(
I watched the documentary "bigger, stronger, faster", and I really enjoyed it. Mike and his 2 brothers mark and chris all seemed like good, nice guys. I'm into weightlifting and the documentary inspired me to go even harder and further with it. My deepest empathy goes to the Bell family. God bless

I just watched the film 'Bigger stronger faster and wanted to find out how Mike's new life in California was going so I googled it and was so saddened and shocked to find out he passed away so young and was trying so hard. I just lost my 29 year old son to abuse so I know the depth of pain his family is going thru. I give my deepest condolences to his wife and family. I am so very sorry for your loss. Sincerely, Jacquelyn Skaggs
My Condolences to his wife and family.
I'm so sorry to hear this. My condolences to his wife and family.
You did right by your family and thats all a good man has to do R.I.P GOD BLESS.
After seeing the documentary, getting a glimpse into the Bell's life was very inspiring and thought provoking. I was also sad to see Mike's life end short. My condolences to the family, his wife, and to the parents who seem very wise and loving. The scene where the mother shared her thoughts about being happy with the way God made us was one of the most poignant statements in the whole film. Thank God for the faith you share and please continue to trust deeply in Jesus' love.
Hi, this is Eddison from Colombia (South America). I just saw the film and I'm shocked with this sad news. My condolences to the family.
I also just finished watching the documentary and just feel terrible about Mike's premature death. I hope he finds peace in the afterlife, and my deepest condolences to his family and friends. He seems like he was a hell of a guy and the world is a poorer place without him.
My lady and i watched your documentary last night we loved it!Then to find out about this about mike very sad,are condolences to the family and friends..kyle in salt lake...
Watched the documentary twice to take it all in, because the film is packed with information. It is solid gold. Then I was searching the net to know more about Chris Bell and his brothers, when I came across this. My feeling is a sense of empathy with the Bells. Thanks for sharing the story of your life so far.
Just watched the documentary.. what a great piece of film making\journalism. I grew up idolizing the same things and changed my life and aspirations as an adult. I absolutely understand Mike's desire to "be somebody" and how this is drilled in to us as children. I pray Mike knew Christ and am encouraged by his parents statements in the film. I also pray our Gracious Lord and Saviour comfort their hearts. Christ should be our measure our comfort and our goal. This world constantly beckons us away... but he calls us home.
Mike,RIP in God's unchanging hands.You are miss'd I saw the announcement on AOL about the news of your Homecoming under Atheletes.So I saved your Wikapedia page the view all your accomplishments later following advertisements.You got sponsers man.~WWF/WWE~ "Wanda"
I had the chance to meet Mike back when he wrestled for ECW at the Mid Hudson Civic Center, and was suprised to see how down to earth he was...not only did he stop to take a picture he also signed my program and talked with me and my dad for a good 10 minutes...I met him once again at an Indy show and was suprised he remembered me and my father. I was suprised to see he had passed. My condolences go out to his family and friends who knew him on a daily basis...with pain and strugle comes hope and happiness RIP MAD DOG MIKE BELL you will be missed
Just watched the documentary this afternoon, and was so impressed with the whole family that I wanted to know more about them.
I was very saddened to read of Mike's passing and wanted to express my sympathies to his family and my hope that he rests in peace. He seemed a really nice guy.
Such a shock to hear of Mikes passing,i found i could realy relate
to mikes experiences in the documetary.My thoughts go out to his family at the loss of such a larger than life character,God Bless.
Mike, you were great in all things. Especially in sorting out things in the end. You came to realize that the only thing that is important in this life is preparation for the next life. Through your achievements and your challanges you came to the realization that Salvation throuth Jesus Christ is what this life is all about. I miss you, but I am happy that you achieved eternal life. Believing and holding on to that belief through death is the only way there. Love Dad.
Mike Bell was a great guy, very intellegent. My condolesces go out to his family. May he RIP.
MAd Dog you will always be a hero. after watching Bigger, Stronger, Faster The bell brothers will be my heroes, that documentery changed my perspective on alot of things, but most of all life.
Mike you did attain greatness, and I hope i can meet you on the other side someday. R.I.P.
Just saw the documentary last night (4/15/2009) and was shocked to learn of Mike's death this afternoon. So sad. He was so full of energy. My condolences to his two loving brothers, his wife, and his parents.
I saw Mike in the documentary and my heart goes out to his family. He seemed like such a nice young man and feel for his loving parents and wife.
