• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (December 9, 2017) – Old School WWF/WCW Veteran Passed Away
On this day in 2017, we lost Old School WWF/WCW Veteran “The Z-Man” Tom Zenk at the age of 59 due to arterial sclerosis and cardiomegaly.
In the fall of 1986, Tom Zenk joined the World Wrestling Federation with his tag team partner Rick Martel as ‘The Can-Am Connection’, but the team didn’t last long as Tom left the promotion in the summer of 1987.
After touring Japan (AJPW) and returning to Verne Gagne’s AWA, Zenk joined Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in September of 1989 and wrestled for the promotion until they let him go in 1994.
