Read a report he has passed away after a long illness.

One hell of a performer.
Not such a good human though.

Both Snuka and Piper gone. Wow.

Wondering who will be the last remaining member of the Hulk Hogan's Rock 'n' Wrestling line-up.

My money's on Tito Santana.

According to Wikipedia, we're at the 50% mark:
- Hulk Hogan
- Wendi Richter
- Hillbilly Jim
- Tito Santana
- The Iron Sheik
- Nikolai Volkoff
- Bobby "The Brain" Heenan
- "Mean" Gene Okerlund
vs.
- Junkyard Dog
- Captain Lou Albano
- André the Giant
- Jimmy "Superfly" Snuka
- Roddy Piper
- The Fabulous Moolah
- Big John Studd
- Mr. Fuji

While that's a good bet, I think I'd go with Hillbilly Jim for the higher payout. They're a year apart in age, Jim had a much shorter career, and the last time I saw him he looked to be in good health. Imagine the sort of matches Hillbilly Jim typically wrestled probably involved less wear & tear on his body than Tito's more high flying style.

Of course, this is assuming Hogan doesn't refuse to job to the reaper when the time comes.

Wendi Richter. Only 55. Women live longer.



We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

Probably a lot of people soured on Superfly because of the (probable) murder of his gf back then.

But growing up, he was Always a favorite of mine.
Basically the first high flyer I saw. Loved the leap from the top.

Very interesting and influential character back in those days.

RIP Superfly.
