I grew up in Australia, but whenever we mucked around wrestling as kids, you know, doing the commentary and everything, one of us would always pretend to be Killer Kowalski.

And I still can't meet anyone called Kowalski without a smile emerging. RIP, big fella.

One of the greatest wrestling villians that's ever been in the business. He was a little past my time but he trained some of today's top guys. Triple H has benefited the most from being trained by Killer Kowalski and if you watch Triple H, you can see the 'Killer' instinct that defined Kowalski's career.

It was never sport, just entertainment, but when Killer Kowalski took to the ring, it was mighty entertaining indeed. I remember the televised matches during my late teens and early twenties that featured Kowalski. I made time to watch them, even though I knew that the fate of western civilization did not hang on the outcome. Just hearing the name brings back some pleasant memories of those times. He will be missed.

Was a shitty weekend.

Phil Hill died. Kowalski died. Geoffrey Perkins died.

Fuck this past weekend.
