    I read that earlier this week, I wanted to post it but it just slipped my mind.

    Definitely a legend, thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.

    Aw, damn. Kiniski put on innumerable shows with many of the greats of my childhood, even once snaking the coveted AWA title from Verne Gagne in the promoter's home base (and mine) of Minneapolis. Godspeed to 'Canada's Greatest Athlete.'

    Never saw the guy in action, but I'll have to look him up. I read this early in the week on TNA's website.

    RIP.

    Me neither, to clarify. I do have the impression, though, of hearing his name as far back as the mid-late-ish '60s-ish.
