Stephen Johnson (February 27, 1970 – May 7, 2007), better known by his ring name Drago, was an American professional wrestler who wrestled for the New International Wrestling Alliance. He was the first ever NIWA World Champion, and was marked as the company's top heel during his time.
Drago was part of the wrestling business for over 20 years, working with various independent promotions starting at the young age of 17. During his short tenure in NIWA, he became the first ever NIWA World Heavyweight Champion. However, during his title match, Drago suffered a severe neck injury that forced him to not only turn over the belt the next night, but retire from the ring.
Though very few appearances for Drago, he remained working backstage with the NIWA talent as a Senior Adviser. He trained up and coming NIWA wrestlers such as Alex Kayne and was always on the road looking for new talent, as well.
On May 7, 2007, Johnson was found dead in his home. His wife Sarah found him on the floor in their bedroom and repeatedly tried CPR to no avail.
Autopsy reports have confirmed his death to be from hereditary heart disease.
