Catch Wrestling promoter and longtime wrestler Otto Wanz died of undisclosed causes at age 74, according to Mike Johnson of PWInsider.com. Wanz had been battling an illness prior to his death.
Powell’s POV: My first glimpse of Wanz occurred on AWA television when he showed off his strength by tearing phonebooks in half. He eventually had a 41-day run with the AWA Championship. My condolences to his family, friends, and fans.
