Donald Haviland, better known as Hack Myers, passed away today, reportedly from complications after brain surgery at Johns Hopkins University hospital in Baltimore. He would have turned 42 on Monday.

Haviland was an independent wrestler who was brought into ECW in February, 1994, by Paul Heyman, largely as an enhancement wrestler. Because he used to grunt and say "Sha" when doing offensive maneuvers, fans in Philadelphia would start chanting "Sha" during his matches whenever he'd do something. He became a cult favorite quickly, and even
though he almost always lost, he was wrestling some of the biggest names in the company at the time, like Tommy Dreamer and Terry Funk, within a few months of his arrival. Eventually that led to his moniker as "The Shah of ECW."

Heyman used him better, not as a headliner, but he was a featured undercard act who usually got a big reaction. The gimmick started running its course and he was going to leave the promotion, so he did a loser leaves town match with Too Cold Scorpio on the 1996 November to Remember show, which he lost. He did a couple of matches as a nostalgias act later, and wrestled mostly Florida independent shows through around 2011.

Aw man. Really good guy and you know what, SEVERELY underrated wrestler. Very very tight. Mark can tell you about Lou Thesz getting into the ring after a match between Hack and Barry Horowitz and complementing both on their work. This sucks. RIP

So long from the Sunshine State.

That's too bad. I enjoyed his stuff when he started with ECW.

RIP.

Later,
Nate

Guess the "last house on the left" is vacant now.

Rest in peace, Hack Myers.

Hack had a heart the size of a basketball. He loved the wrestling business and he loved the people around it even more. Some of my favorite moments ever working in wrestling involved Hack. He will be sorely missed.

RIP Hack.

First saw him on a ECW tape I ordered in the 90s. I will remember the event later, but it was the one where he teamed with the Young Dragons and battered them after the match because thy left him to get battered.

He had a unique look and could of done more.

I was at the ROH show at the Fort Lauderdale War Memorial Auditorium when I heard about his passing. 11 years ago I saw Hack live in action for the first time in the same building and was amazed at how different he looked compared to his ECW days. He was in great physical shape and looked 10 years younger than he did 10 years earlier. I met him that night and at a few other shows over the years and he was always friendly to me and my friends. RIP Shah!
