Wrestling icon Verne Gagne died late Monday night. In recent years he struggled with Alzheimer’s Disease.
Gagne was best known for operating the American Wrestling Association out of the Twin Cities. He was an accomplished amateur wrestler, 10-time AWA World Heavyweight Champion and trained the vast majority of the superstars of the 1980s and ’90s.
Below is Gagne taking on “Scrap Iron” Gadaski with Khosrow Vaziri as referee. Vaziri would later become a WWF champion and Twitter sensation as the Iron Sheik.
