WWE has issued an official statement on the passing of Austin Powers star and former WWE RAW Guest Host Verne Troyer, who passed away earlier today at 49-years-old.
WWE is saddened to learn that Verne Troyer has passed away at age 49. Best-known for playing Mini-Me in the Austin Powers films and Griphook in “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone,” the actor also served as a guest General Manager on Monday Night Raw in November 2009. After engaging The Miz in a war of words, Troyer put the reluctant A-Lister into a match against future WWE Hall of Famer Mark Henry. WWE extends its condolences to Troyer’s family, friends and fans.
