After the match, Terry was wrapped so tightly in the barbed wire we couldn't get it off. I thought, my God I am going to have to put him on American Airlines back to Amarillo at 7:50 the next morning for the flight home to Amarillo bloody and encased from head to toe in Texas Barbed Wire. Fortunately there was an electrician on duty at the ECW Bingo Hall who let me borrow his wire cutters to disentangle Terry from the aftermath of the match with Public Enemy.

  On September 22, 2002, Ted Petty ("Flyboy" Rocco Rock) died after suffering a heart attack following a wrestling event. This would effectively end The Public Enemy as a unit, although Johnny Grunge had been semi-retired for a few years after the XWF failed to get a TV deal.

On February 16, 2006, Mike Durham (Johnny Grunge) died in his home after suffering from complications from sleep apnea. A friend tried to get Durham to the hospital in time, but by the time they arrived at the hospital, Durham was pronounced dead on arrival.
