On Thursday the world of wrestling lost a legend. 75 years old WWE Hall of Famer Rocky Johnson passed away at his home. Rocky Johnson is the father of world famous wrestler and Hollywood actor Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson. Before joining the WWE as part of the first black tag team with Tony Atlas winning the World Tag Team Championship he wrestled for the National Wresting Alliance (NWA) and later on joined WWF.
WWE issued an official statement reveling the demise of Rocky Johnson and the cause behind his demise (according to reports he was suffering from an illness but, being stubborn as he was, he took it lightly) and since then the tributes have been pouring in for the former champion.
Rocky took his retirement in 1991 and started to concentrate on training his son Dwayne’s career as a professional wrestler.
