Harold Hogue (Ice Train) Passes Away At Age 56

Ice Train has passed away.

In a post on Instagram, WWE Hall of Famer Diamond Dallas Page shared his thoughts on the news that Harold Hogue, formerly known as Ice Train in WCW, had passed away. He discussed their 30-year friendship and called Hogue one of the kindest people he had ever known.

Page stated that their families were one family, and he looked back on fond memories they had shared. In one example, he recalled how they helped the less fortunate enjoy a better Christmas. He wrote that Hogue would be missed, but he would never be forgotten.

Hogue first wrestled for WCW in 1993. He later returned to the company in 1996, and he had another run in 2000. He memorably teamed up with Ice, and they feuded with The Steiner Brothers (Scott and Rick Steiner). After the team broke up, he competed as a singles wrestler. He was renamed "M.I. Smooth", and he was part of The New Blood. Hogue retired shortly after WCW went under, but he had a one-off return in 2019.

On behalf of Fightful, our condolences are with Hogue's family, friends, and fans.
