    He was most arguably the most famous and greatest wrestler there was and now Lou Thesz has just passed away. He will be missed by msot old school wrestling fans. Lou was 86 years old. My condolences go out to Lou's family/friends.

    Thats to bad, I'll send my condolences out to Lou's family and friends as well. :(

    I really don't recognize his name, did he wrestle using this name?
    Although at 86, I guess it was before my time, I'm almost 40.
    Now I'm curious, I'll have to find out more about Lou's wrestling career. :)

    Thanks for the post, jlvideo

    Thesz was a big star throughout the 1950's. He always wrestled cleanly and never resorted to dirty tactics. He also spoke like the gentleman that he was and he would have never gone for this junk that the WWF foists on a gullible public.

    I am surprised by his death. I send my condolences out to Lou's family. I wondering how Superstar Billy Graham is doing. I called his hospital offering to be a donor since they REALLY needed one. I hope they found one cuz I never got a call back.
