Very sad news for wrestling fans and me personally.

Wrestling great Nick Bokwinkle, born Nick Francis has passed away at the age of 80.

Bokwinkle wrestled most of his career in the AWA as the foil of Verne Gagne. Bokwinkle had a great career as a heel in the business and he was managed by Bobby Heenan.

He also has a great run in the WCW in the 90's as a commissioner.

I remember him and admired him from the first day I saw him in Denver on KWGN TV on a Sunday morning. He died in Las Vegas and had been suffering from Alzheimer's in recent years. I will really miss him. There will never be another.
