Killer Kowalski Leaves the Ring
In the days before professional wrestling became more a world of comic book soap operas, it was an art and a sport.
Heroes and villains like Bruno Samartino, Chief Jay Strongbow and Killer Kowalski ruled the ring in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s.
I have fond memories of watching the grand battles on local channel 48 in my boyhood, and now we've lost one of the legends.
This past weekend, Killer Kowalski passed away. Besides his reputation as one of wrestling's most infamous villains, he was also an articulate, intelligent gentleman. The world doesn't have enough folks out there like Killer.
