RIP Ox Baker

Ox Baker has passed away at age 80.  It is an uncontroversial opinion that Ox had one of the most distinctive looks of any wrestler.  Couple that with the legend of his Heart Punch "IT KILLED TOO PEOPLE!" and you have an iconic wrestling legend.

To that end, his passing made TMZ Sports in part due to him tangling with Kurt Russell in "Escape from New York."

Even better than all of that, I have heard from multiple people that Ox was a legitimately nice guy.  Basically, the opposite of his wrestling persona.

If you're not following the WWE Archivist on Twitter, you should.  Check out this awesome pre-facial hair look at the legendary Ox Baker may he rest in peace.
