• Wrestling World Reacts To Rocky Johnson’s Death

As we noted earlier today, Old School WWF Legend Rocky Johnson passed away at the age of 75.

Rocky Johnson wrestled for many different territories from his debut in 1964 until his retirement in 1991, but was most famous for his 1982-1985 run with the World Wrestling Federation, where he and Tony Atlas became the first black Tag Team to win a major World Tag Team Championship.

Nowadays, everyone knew him as the father of the #1 actor in Hollywood, fellow WWF Legend “The Rock” Dwayne Johnson.

It was The Rock, who inducted his dad into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2008.

Below is how the wrestling world reacted to Rocky’s death:
