The pro wrestling world has lost another legend.
On Wednesday, the news surfaced that Blackjack Lanza has passed away at age 86.
Lanza was one-half of the Blackjacks along with Blackjack Mulligan, and would later serve as the lead agent behind-the-scenes for WWE during some of the prime years of the company.
Soon after hearing of the sad news, Jim Ross took to social media to comment on the passing of the WWE Hall Of Fame and Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame legend.
“Just heard from old, Winnipeg friend Bob Holliday that Jack Lanza has passed away at the age of 86,” wrote Ross. “Jack was our lead agent during the Attitude Era. Helluva hand.”
