Stevie Lee Richardson appeared in the third big-screen outing for Knoxville’s hit TV show, which saw a group of friends play dangerous stunts on each other.

In the film, Lee performed a stunt that involved pulling a gun on fellow TNA wrestler, Jeff Jarrett.

The movie topped the US box office 10 years ago, with opening weekend takings of $50m (£31.4m).

Lee’s other on-screen credits included American Horror Story and Oz the Great and Powerful.

He was also a member of the wrestling group Half Pint Brawlers.
