On Wednesday it was revealed that WWE Hall of Famer Blackjack Lanza, real name John Lanza, passed away at the age of 86.
Lanza was part of the Blackjacks tag team alongside Blackjack Mulligan.
They wrestled together during the 1960’s and 70’s where they found a lot of success. They were champions in WWE (the World Wide Wrestling Federation), American Wrestling Association and World Wrestling Association.
Just heard from old, Winnipeg friend Bob Holliday that Jack Lanza has passed away at the age of 86.
Jack was our lead agent during the Attitude Era.
Helluva hand. 🙏🤠
