Larry Matysik died on Sunday morning at age 72. The Wrestling at the Chase announcer was reportedly placed in hospice care over the weekend while battling pneumonia. The news of Matysik’s death was announced by his friend Herb Simmons via his Facebook Page.
Powell’s POV: Matysik wrote several books on pro wrestling. He was inducted into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame in Waterloo, Iowa as a Jim Melby Award winner in 2014. Matysik and Simmons opened the St. Louis Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2007. My condolences to Matysik’s family and many friends.
