IMHO one of the great heels of all time and came along at just the right time .  He could really draw heat during his heyday

Absolutely. He's pretty much the epitome of the Foreign Heel trope in my opinion. I'm saddened by his passing but glad it wasn't another suicide or drug related death. He lived to 70, that's pretty good for a wrassler anymore.

DeltaBoy:
Rest in Peace.
