Pro Wrestling Since 1997


More on the passing of Angelo Savoldi


April 21, 1914 – September 20, 2013

Angelo Savoldi, an honored guest at a number of CAC reunions, passed away on Friday, September 20, 2013. By all accounts the oldest living wrestler at 99 years of age, this grand old gentleman occupied a special place in the hearts of all who knew him. He began wrestling in 1937, and had a long career that saw him hold the NWA Junior Heavyweight Championship on three different occasions. Nearing ring retirement, he became an agent and promoter with Capital Sports, the parent company of the WWWF, and remained involved in promotion with his sons for many years beyond the normal retirement age.

We’ll have a larger story in the next few days, in recognition of Angelo’s long association with our sport.

Rest in peace Angelo…

    So close to 100. If only he had lived for 5 more months he then may have became the first pro wrestler to reach 100.

    Would Angelo Savoldi have gotten anything from the US President if he had had made it to 100?

    Correction, 6 months.
