Maurice “Mad Dog” Vachon, one of the greatest heels of all-time and a former Canadian Olympic wrestler, passed away this morning at 4 a.m. in Omaha, Nebraska. He was 84 years of age.

    The wrestling world lost a great wrestler and the world lost a great man. The first wrestling match I ever saw was Mad Dog vs. Reggie Parks literally a block from my house. I can still remember that like yesterday.
