• Old School WWF Veteran Passes Away

We are saddened to announce that 64-year-old WWF Veteran Corporal Kirchner (Real name: Michael Kirchner) passed away last night after suffering a heart attack.

He wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation from 1985 until 1987, before taking the character to Bruce Hart’s ‘Calgary Stampede Wrestling’ territory.

Later on, Corporal Kirchner went to Japan and competed as Leatherface, a gimmick similar to the serial killer from the horror movies ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’.

We extend our condolences to Kirchner’s family, friends and fans.
