Always one of the best drop kicks. And great in AJ tags with Dan Kroffat. Mark Coale Odessa Steps Magazine presents

If the company had bothered to book around their lack of personality, they could have been something special. RIP

I was going to say yet another one who went before his time, but I suppose fifty-one is pretty good going for a wrestler who obviously abused steroids for much of his career. twitter: @superfurry316

If the company had bothered to book around their lack of personality, they could have been something special. Exactly. Furnas and LaFon were spectacular workers, but they needed a mouthpiece oh-so-badly. (I think they might have had Lance Wright in the ECW days, but that doesn't count for much). I seem to remember the WWF teasing Jim Cornette managing them at one point, but it never came to pass. Damn shame.

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1089754-doug-furnas-dead-at-50-former-ajpw-wwe-star-had-battled-parkinsons-disease Didn't know he had parkinsons.
While wishing him well, I can't really say that Vito (or Skull von Krush?) ever really did anything to make me think he could do substantially better than the "guy humiliating himself for comedy relief" role they gave him.
