On this day in 2004, we lost Old School WWF Veteran Hercules Hernandez (Real name: Ray Fernandez) at the age of 47 due to heart disease.
Hercules wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation from 1995 till he left in 1992.
He was originally managed by “Classy” Freddie Blassie, but Slick took over the contracts of Blassie’s entire stable in 1986, before selling Hercules to Bobby “The Brain” Heenan a few months later.
His most famous matches were probably against “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan for the WWF World Title on an episode of Saturday Night’s Main Event in 1986, and wrestling The Ultimate Warrior at WrestleMania IV in 1988.
