Unhappy Former Pro Wrestler Verne Gagne 1926-2015

Link


GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. -- Verne Gagne passed away Monday at age 89.

Longtime AWA and WWE personality Gene Okerlund confirmed the news via his Twitter page saying, "Sad to hear my longtime friend Verne Gagne has passed today. To me, there was never anybody quite like him. May you rest in peace."

Gagne attended Robbinsdale High School and played football at the University of Minnesota. He played in the NFL for the Chicago Bears.

In 1949, he decided to pursue professional wrestling. In April 2006, Gagne was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by his son, Greg Gagne.

Condolences to the friends and family of Verne Gagne. Truly one of the great legends of wrestling as a promoter and a wrestler.

It's too bad that Verne Gagne was during the latter part promotional career (by the second half of the '80s), was seen as being an out of touch, stubborn old man.
