• 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.
CAC sends it's sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Michael Penzel, known in the wrestling world as Corporal Kirchner. Michael passed away at the age of 64. Rest in Peace Sir. pic.twitter.com/CTvr9SpdEy
