• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (April 27, 2015) – Old School Wrestling Legend Passed Away
On this day in 2015, we lost Old School Wrestling Legend Verne Gagne at the age of 89 due to Alzheimer’s disease.
Verne used to be a multiple time amateur wrestling champion and even represented the United States Olympic Team at the 1948 Olympic Games.
Most Old School Wrestling fans remember Gagne as the promoter of the legendary ‘American Wrestling Association’ territory, including 10 title reigns as their World Heavyweight Champion.
In 2006, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by his son Greg Gagne, the night before WrestleMania 22, years after he was already inducted into the short-lived WCW Hall of Fame in 1993.
† REST IN PEACE VERNE GAGNE!

As you can see in the above graphic, “The Monster Among Men” Braun Strowman (who won last year’s Men’s Money In The Bank ladder match) isn’t included in the match.
One of the possible reasons behind this could be that he’s rumored to feud with United States Champion Samoa Joe.
