Growing up watching AWA he was one of the "special appearances" that we'd always look forward to.

Always sad to hear news like this about a pleasant childhood memory. RIP

I was about to post the same. Here's a link to the story from the Green Bay Press Gazette.

Here's hoping you're doing the beer barrel polka up there right now, Crusher.

EDIT - speeling

Man, it wasn't that long ago that Murphy in the Morning up here on 101.1 WIXX-FM would have a guy call in to his show, doing his Crusher impersonation.

Good times...good times.

Our NWA Wisconsin crew tipped a few back in your honor last night watching Bound for Glory, Crusher...we'll miss ya.

Man, that guy was great. With his beer and his stogies, he was the original "Stone Cold". RIP, Crusher.

I saw Crusher and Bruiser australian tag team many times at the Hammond Auditorium with Bob Luce promoting. I got to shake his hand once (no slaps in those day) when I was about 10, I guess. I am pretty sure they were taking on the Blackjacks that night. Crusher and Bruiser are what made me really like wrestling. You could tell they were just enjoying their jobs and being very professional at it. But I am thinking they were at the bar soon after.

Grab the rope, Crusher - you're tagged out for awhile.

Tagged out? I imagine Bruiser just tagged him in!

Going to watch a tape I have of sixties Chicago wrestling again just to see that team work.
