• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (March 4, 2010) – Old School Wrestling Legend Passed Away
On this day in 2010, we lost Old School Wrestling Legend Angelo Poffo at the age of 84 due to natural causes.
Poffo was a professional wrestler during the 40s, 50s, 60s and 70s, as well as the promoter of International Championship Wrestling (ICW), but the thing Angelo was most famous for, was by far being the father of WWF Legend “The Macho Man” Randy Savage and WWF Veteran “The Genius” Lanny Poffo.
In 1995, he was inducted into the short-lived WCW Hall of Fame, but has yet to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, which is probably going to happen as part of their annual ‘Legacy Wing’ inductions.
REST IN PEACE ANGELO POFFO
