RIP "Clawmaster" Jim Zordani

Greg Oliver does another touching obituary for SLAM! Wrestling, but the subject this time isn't a worker.  It's Jim Zordani who is more commonly known as "Clawmaster." 

Basically, if you've ever followed discussions that included results of classic wrestling there's a really good chance that you've been exposed to some of his work.  My main interactions with him were just seeing his results and/or posts on the Wrestling Classics Message Board.  By all accounts he was nothing if not a gentleman.  His work has been a tremendous asset for the wrestling community.

He was a legitimate wrestling historian and he will be missed.

The thread on WCMB in his memory has some excellent stories and really drives home what a tremendous guy he was.  

RIP Mr. Zordani.
