• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (June 26, 1992) – Old School WWF Legend Passed Away
On this day in 1992, we lost Old School WWF Legend “The Nature Boy” Buddy Rogers at the age of 71, after he suffered three strokes in the previous weeks.
The original Nature Boy had a long and illustrious career that saw him wrestle for several territories and lasted from his debut in 1939 until his retirement in 1983.
Rogers became the first ever WWWF World Heavyweight Champion in 1963, after he had already won the NWA World Heavyweight Championship in 1961.
In 1994 he was posthumously inducted into the WWF Hall of Fame (now known as WWE Hall of Fame) by “The Hitman” Bret Hart.
