By Dave Scherer on 2015-11-15 11:33:44

Nick Bockwinkel, who was one of the truly all-time great champions, passed away overnight at the age of 80 years old.

He held the AWA Championship four times over his illustrious career.  He was also a three time AWA Tag Team Champion, with Ray Stevens.

Bockwinkel was universally seen as one of the most classy and intelligent people that the wrestling business has ever seen.

We send out our deepest condolences to his friends and family.
