RIP Wrestling Manager Gary Hart

Gary Hart, a wrestling manager that yours truly grew up watching, died on March 16.

Hart played a big part in the popularity of Fritz Von Erich's Dallas, Texas-based World Class Championship Wrestling in the 1980's.

Hart will always be a notable figure in wrestling for introducing such great characters, such as the Great Muta, King Kong Bundy, The Great Kabuki and The One Man Gang; as well as bringing up many young, talented wrestlers like Chris Adams, Gino Hernandez and Al Perez into Jim Crockett's National Wrestling Alliance in the late 80's.

Hart suffered a massive heart attack his home in Euless, Texas after returning from an autograph session. He was 66.
