• Breaking News: WWF WrestleMania X Celebrity Passes Away
We are saddened to learn that WrestleMania X Celebrity Little Richard (Real name: Richard Penniman) passed away earlier today at the age of 87.
Old School Rock & Roll fans certainly remember his famous songs, like “Long Tall Sally”, “Lucille”, “Keep A Knockin’ and “Tutti Frutti”, that made Little Richard a huge Legend in the music business.
The Rock & Roll Hall of Famer ended up singing “America the Beautiful” at the beginning of the WWF WrestleMania X pay-per-view on March 20, 1994, which is what most Old School 90s Wrestling fans remember about him.
Little Richard’s cause of death wasn’t disclosed yet.
We extend our condolences to his family, friends & fans.
REST IN PEACE LITTLE RICHARD
December 5, 1932 – May 9, 2020
