• Former WWF Wrestler Passed Away 11 Years Ago Today Due To A Self-Inflicted Gunshot Wound
On this day in 2010, we lost Old School WWF Veteran Ludvig Borga (Real name: Tony Halme) at the age of 47 due to a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
He wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation as an upper mid-carder in 1993 & early 1994 and was eventually going to be pushed to be a main eventer, but then got injured and left the company.
Borga’s biggest accomplishment during his time in the WWF was ending Tatanka’s 2 year winning streak.
After his Professional Wrestling Career was over, he became an MMA fighter, losing to Randy “The Natural” Couture at ‘UFC 13: The Ultimate Force’ on May 30, 1997.
He later became a politician and even got elected into the Parliament of his home country, Finland.
† REST IN PEACE LUDVIG BORGA
