Wrestling With Bad News: WCCW's Legendary Gary Hart Died Yesterday
If you were a fan of the local wrestling scene in the 1980s (hand raised high), you know the name Gary Hart -- man was larger than life, even when standing alongside the likes of the Fritz von Erich and his big boys. Hart was danged near responsible all by himself for the success of the World Class Championship Wrestling -- at least, that's what Hart would tell you if you asked. Alas, sad news: Hart died yesterday in Euless, at the age of 66. He'd just returned home from an autograph session in Pennsylvania. Some video of the man in action at Texas Stadium from an old wrestling show, circa 1987, below. --Robert Wilonsky
