Wrestling legend passes away



From Wrestlingobserver.com:

King Curtis Iaukea, a legend in Hawaiian wrestling and a huge star in the 60s and 70s, passed away today in Honolulu. We have no other details other that he passed away at home with his wife and two daughters.

Iaukea, a 300-pounder who was a football star at the University of California, headlined virtually everywhere in the world during his long career as a headliner, known for feuding in particular with Mark Lewin in a number of circuits and being in bloody matches.

He was a mentor to many in wrestling and was considered to be among the best interviews in the history of the business.

Iaukea, 73, had been ill for several months.
