• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (October 6, 1999) – Old School WWF Legend Passed Away
On this day in 1999, we lost Old School WWF Legend Gorilla Monsoon (Real name: Robert Marella) at the age of 62 due to complications of diabetes.
After his career as an active WWWF/WWF Superstar came to an end during the early 80s, Gorilla Monsoon became an announcer and will always be remembered as one of the 2 greatest play-by-play commentators in professional wrestling history, with the other one being “Good Ol’ J.R.” Jim Ross.
In 1994, Monsoon was inducted into the WWF Hall of Fame (now known as WWE Hall of Fame) by his colleague & friend Jim Ross.
The last time we saw him on TV was during the ‘WWF WrestleMania XV’ PPV, where he received a standing ovation.
