“Outlaw” Ron Bass passes away
Debuting in 1975, the tough Texan performed in several NWA territories, including Jim Crockett Promotions and Florida Championship Wrestling.
It was in 1987 that Bass rose to national fame in WWE. With his ruthless attitude and dreaded bullwhip, Bass battled against classic fan favorites like Junkyard Dog and Brutus “The Barber” Beefcake. He even claimed a pinfall victory over a young Shawn Michaels in the 1988 King of the Ring tournament.
Following his retirement from the ring in 1991, Bass earned a bachelor’s degree from Arkansas State University and became a successful construction equipment salesman.
WWE extends its condolences to Heard’s family, friends and fans.http://www.firstcomicsnews.com/outlaw-ron-bass-passes-away/http://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Ron-Bass-logo-600x257.pnghttp://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Ron-Bass-logo-150x64.pngNewsWrestling News
