• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (December 4, 2010) – Old School Wrestling Veteran Passed Away

On this day in 2010, we lost former Wrestler & WWF/WCW Manager “The Wizard” King Curtis Iaukea (Real name: Curtis Piehau Iaukea III), who passed away at the age of 73.

While he wrestled for the NWA & the WWWF during the 50s, 60s & 70s, most Old School fans will probably remember him as a manager, when he managed Kamala & Sika during his mid-80s World Wrestling Federation stint, and The Dungeon of Doom (in WCW) during the mid-90s.

WCW Superstar Prince Iaukea, who wrestled for them during the Monday Night Wars, was actually named after him.

† REST IN PEACE KING CURTIS IAUKEA

September 15, 1937 – December 4, 2010
