In Memoriam

Today, in 1993, the wrestling world lost former WWF Intercontinental Champion and multiple-time NWA Champion Kerry von Erich at the age of 33. Kerry had been on a downward spiral since losing his foot in a motorcycle accident and committed suicide by gunshot whilst also driving his car over a cliff.

Also lost today, in 1995, was former ECW Tag Team Champion (amongst many other regional titles) Eddie Gilbert. Gilbert suffered a heart attack aged just 33. His father stated that his cardiac muscle had sustained serious injuries in a car accident 12 years earlier and this, along with his alleged use of painkillers, contributed to the condition

  1. Kerry is NOT a “multiple-time NWA Champion”. He held the NWA World Title one time for approximately 2 1/2 weeks (I think).

  2. Jamie says:

    Sorry, that’s my bad grammar – it should read a multiple time champion in the NWA (ie. he has held multiple NWA-sanctioned titles)

  3. Also, one additional title change: 1971 Pepper Gomez def. Johnny Valentine for the WCCW Texas Heavyweight Title
