• WWF Veteran Died In A Car Accident 33 Years Ago Today
On this day in 1988, we lost Old School WWF Veteran Adrian Adonis (Real name: Keith Franke Jr.), who died in a car accident at the age of 34.
Adrian Adonis formed ‘The East-West Connection’ with Jesse “The Body” Ventura and ‘The North-South Connection’ with “Dirty” Dick Murdoch, before adapting the queer gimmick of “Adorable” Adrian Adonis, which led to the legendary match with fellow WWF Legend “Rowdy” Roddy Piper at WrestleMania III, that resulted in Adonis getting his head shaved.
He has yet to be inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, which might actually happen as part of the annual Legacy Wing inductions.
† REST IN PEACE ADRIAN ADONIS
September 15, 1953 – July 4, 1988
