• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (June 3, 2016) – Old School WrestleMania Celebrity Passed Away
On this day in 2016, we lost Old School WWF WrestleMania 1 Celebrity Muhammad Ali (fka Cassius Clay) at the age of 74.
Ali is considered one of the best boxers of all time, and probably even THE most famous boxer in the history of boxing.
He wasn’t just the 2nd (outside) special guest referee at the inaugural WWF WrestleMania in 1985, but also presented the WCW World Heavyweight Championship to “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan at the end of the Halloween Havoc 1994 PPV. He also faced Wrestling Legend Antonio Inoki years earlier (1976) in a “Boxer vs. Wrestler” match.
† REST IN PEACE MUHAMMAD ALI
January 17, 1942 – June 3, 2016
