    Legendary WCW star Wahoo McDaniels has passed on. As a kid, I used to love watching Wahoo. It's a shame to see him pass on. Rest in peace!

    Long live the king of the Indian Strap Match!!!

    Thanks for posting this article. I didn't know Wahoo was this ill! I remember him from the 80's with Roddy Piper and Sgt Slaughter and so forth. Met him once at the Coliseum in Phoenix in the mid 80's with Paul Orndorff. I never saw Wahoo as a football player. Rest in peace!

    Wo! I'm not that old. I've heard of Ernie. Met the Iron Sheik once. Is that the Sheik? That white robe. Scary face. Scared a teenager too.
