Tom Zenk dead at age 59

Tom Zenk died at age 59 on December 9 of undisclosed causes. The Star Tribune ran Zenk’s obituary acknowledging his death and his January 13 celebration of life.

Powell’s POV: Zenk’s most notable run was with Rick Martel as the Can-Am Connection in the WWF/WWE. However, Zenk left the promotion abruptly in 1987 and Martel went on to team with Tito Santana as Strike Force. Zenk worked All-Japan tours following his WWF departure in addition to working in the AWA and as Z-Man in WCW. My condolences to Zenk’s friends and family.
