According to Pwinsider.com, former WCW wrestler Al Green passed away this morning at the age of 58. He had been reportedly battling health issues for a while.

Green was originally trained by Steve Keirn, and worked as one half of the Master Blasters tag team with Kevin Nash. He also worked with Road Warrior Animal’s brother Marcus Laurinaitis as one half of the Terminators in the US and Japan. The team got a run in 1993 WCW as The Wrestling Crew, and from there had runs in Otto Wanz’ CWA and in All Japan Pro Wrestling in 1995. Green had a final run back with WCW in the company’s dying days, with the gimmick “The Dog.”

For the last few years, Green had been suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), which is a progressive disease that makes it hard to breathe. He had to use an oxygen tank full time.

On behalf of the Cauliflower Alley Club, we would like to extend our sympathies to the family, friends and fans of Mr. Green.
