• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (September 7, 2003) – Old School Veteran Passed Away
On this day in 2003, we lost Old School Wrestling Veteran The Great Antonio (Real name: Antonio Barichievich) at the age of 77 due to a heart attack.
During the 50s, 60s & 70s he worked for various canadian territories, as well as a few matches for Vince McMahon Sr.’s ‘NWA Capitol Wrestling’, which eventually became the World Wide Wrestling Federation (later WWF/WWE).
In 1977, while on a tour for NJPW, he wrestled the legendary Antonio Inoki, but during the match for some reason refused to sell for his his opponent and at the same time stiffed him with some heavy punches.
As a reaction to Antonio refusing to work a proper match, the legitimate Martial Arts fighter Inoki responded by shooting (fighting for real) on him, taking Antonio down and kicking his face in, leaving him a bloody mess.
† REST IN PEACE GREAT ANTONIO
October 10, 1925 – September 7, 2003
