Aged Wrestling Legend Body-Slams Nursing Home Roommate To Death

Sad but funny.  And as the rest of the story recounts, Gagne sounds like he was a really classy guy

Take that you nasty smelling denture wearing sumbitch!

During his glory days as a pro wrestler, Verne Gagne shared the spotlight with other burly men in trunks, guys with names like Killer Kowalski, Mad Dog Vachon, The Crusher and Baron Von Raschke.

But all of that seemed well in the past until just weeks ago, when authorities say Gagne, 82 and suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, apparently body-slammed a 97-year-old fellow patient at the suburban nursing home where they both lived, causing the man’s death.

Bloomington police are investigating, but not even the victim’s widow wants to see the dementia-stricken Gagne prosecuted.
