• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (February 27, 2014) – Old School Wrestling Veteran Passed Away
On this day in 2014, we lost Old School Wrestling Veteran Billy Robinson at the age of 75 due to natural causes.
The British ‘catch wrestling’ specialist had a great career in the United States, Canada, Europe & Japan.
In 1982, he wrestled WWWF World Heavyweight Champion Bob Backlund to a 60-minutes time limit draw.
Billy Robinson has been inducted into several smaller Pro Wrestling Halls of Fame, but has yet to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, which is most likely going to happen as part of the annual ‘Legacy Wing’ inductions.
† REST IN PEACE BILLY ROBINSON!
