Way to Die #242: Slippery When Dead -- the third death to be featured in "Death: One Size Fits All", which has been originally aired on August 29, 2011.


On September 1, 1998, in Beaver Dam, KY. A feared hot oil wrestler named Mariah accepts a challenge from her rival (whom she once defeated by cheating) for a $500 cash prize. Next, she beats Samantha. Samantha is a wrestler with a green tank top and with pink shorts. During the match, Mariah beats her rival once again, but ends up dead when she slips and impales her skull on a boxing ring bell. The timekeeper, shocked, shouts, "WHOSE IDEA WAS IT TO PUT A SPIKE ON THIS BELL???" Mariah was killed because a spike of a ring bell impales her right through the back of her head.

"Nobody likes a cheater... except in this slippery world of oil-wrestling chicks. Mariah was ready to baste her latest challenger, but, then she got... greased."
