5. Legendary Batman Actor Adam West Passed Away

We’re sad to announce that the legendary actor Adam West, whom most of you Old School Fans will remember as Batman from the 1966-1968 Batman TV Series, as well as the 1966 film ‘Batman: The Movie’, passed away.

He also appeared on CWA Memphis Wrestling TV (1976) in full Batman character, also wearing the mask, during an encounter with Jerry “The King” Lawler.
