from meltzer:

King Curtis Iaukea, a legend in Hawaiian wrestling and a huge star in the 60s and 70s, passed away today in Honolulu. We have no other details other tha he passed away at home with his wife and two daughters.

Iaukea, a 300-pounder who was a football star at the University of California, headlined virtually everywhere in the world during his long career as a headliner, known for feuding in particular with Mark Lewin in a number of circuits and being in bloody matches.

He was a mentor to many in wrestling and was considered to be among the best interviews in the history of the business.

Iaukea, 73, had been ill for several months.

Not many people could phone it in from Wai ki ki beach in Florida in the 80's.

Something I wasn't aware of: Curtis Iaukea and former WCW Television and Cruiserweight Champion Prince Iaukea weren't related. Prince Iaukea's real name is Michael Haynes, and he was trained by Rico Federico and Dean Malenko. Later, Kevin Sullivan invited him to some TV tapings, and was so impressed by Haynes that he gave him the "Prince Iaukea" moniker, naming him after Curtis, a good friend of Sullivan's.

Wow, I remember Dave Sullivan explaining who he was to me back in 94 or 95 at a kids club expo where he was doing an autograph signing. I had now clue who he was then & he explained he was very well known. That's why he got the "Dungeon Master" part. Memorable.
