In Memoriam

On this day in 1991, the wrestling world lost former AWA World Champion Dick The Bruiser at the age of 62. Outside of the ring, The Bruiser was also a talented promoter, running the NWA Indianapolis territory WWA for 25 years. After retiring from active wrestling, he became a talent scout for WCW, returning to the ring at Starrcade 1990 as the special guest referee for the main event match. His death was somewhat of a freak accident; his widow states that he was lifting weights with his adopted son, when the strain caused a blood vessel in his esophagus to rupture, resulting in death by internal bleeding.
