• Old School WCW Veteran Would Have Celebrated His Birthday Today
Today would have been the 57th birthday of Old School WCW Veteran The Renegade (Real name: Richard Wilson).
He debuted for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling promotion when WCW World Heavyweight Champion Hulk Hogan himself announced an “Ultimate Surprise” for ‘WCW Uncensored 1995’, thus implying that The Ultimate Warrior would join him at the PPV.
The gimmick of The Renegade was basically that of Old School WWF Legend The Ultimate Warrior, which made him a clone and a copy-cat, completely rejected by pretty much everyone watching, critics & fans alike.
It wasn’t his fault though, but just a bad booking decision that hurt his career before it already begun.
Despite winning the WCW World Television Championship from Old School WCW Legend Arn Anderson in 1995, he was eventually turned into a ‘Jobber To The Stars’ a year later in 1996.
Renegade was fired from the promotion in January 1999, which resulted in a severe depression, that led to him committing suicide by shooting himself in the head with a gun on February 23, 1999.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
October 16, 1965 – February 23, 1999
