Greg Oliver of SLAM! Wrestling is reporting that WWE Hall of Famer Maurice “Mad Dog” Vachon passed away on Thursday morning. Vachon was 84. He was described as being in poor health for some time stemming from a hit-and-run accident in 1987 that resulted in the amputation of his leg. Maurice’s brother, Paul “The Butcher” Vachon, confirmed the death.
On behalf the entire Wrestleview.com staff, we wish to send our condolences to the Vachon family during this very hard time.
