• Former WWF/WCW Wrestler Passed Away 24 Years Ago Today At The Age Of 27
On this day in 1998, we lost Old School Wrestling Veteran “Rad Radford” Louie Spicolli (Real name: Louis Mucciolo Jr.) at the very young age of 27 due to a drug overdose.
Spicolli wrestled for all the big 3 promotions of the 90s.
After doing televised jobs for the company for years, he joined the World Wrestling Federation full-time as Rad Radford (1995-1996), before working for Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling (1996-1997) and eventually joining Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in 1997.
Louie was scheduled to wrestle Larry Zbyszko at the WCW SuperBrawl VIII PPV, but that match never took place, because Spicolli passed away from a drug overdose one week before the event.
† REST IN PEACE LOUIE SPICOLLI
