• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (January 28, 2006) – Old School WCW Veteran Passed Away
On this day in 2006, we lost Old School WCW Veteran “Hail” Emory Hale at the young age of 36 due to kidney failure.
Some of you will certainly remember the 6’9 wrestler from his World Championship Wrestling days with Jimmy Hart as his manager, mostly wrestling on the weekly C-shows like WCW Saturday Night and WCW WorldWide.
After his time in WCW, Hale worked for Jimmy Hart’s XWF in 2001 & 2002, before he had to retire from professional wrestling, because of a kidney transplant in 2003.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † R.I.P.
December 13, 1969 – January 28, 2006
