Whoa dude. Thanks for posting that.

It really brought me back to the days when the WWF was one of the biggest things in my life in the 80's. I have a lot of fond memories of going to Maple Leaf Gardens each year to see most of the people on that page like Owen Hart (blue blazer at the time) JYD, Andre the Giant, Mr perfect, Miss Elizabeth, Big Boss Man, Dino Brovo, and of course many that are not on that list yet.

It's sad that so many of these icons have met such a fucked up end.

The Ultimate Warrior article was very interesting. I forgot how awesome and bat-shit insane that dude was/is (more just nuts these days though)

anyway, great find.
