Kat LeRoux, a former wrestler for the NWA in Jim Crockett Promotions and the AWA, has passed away.
The passing was first made public by Brittany Brown on social media. It is not known what LeRoux passed away from, but PWInsider is reporting that she was experiencing health issues related to her liver. She was either 50 or 51 years old.
LeRoux broke into wrestling in 1986 after being trained by Walter “Killer” Kowalski. Her first big moment came later that year as she competed in a battle royal at AWA WrestleRock, which was won by Sherri Martel. LeRoux was a frequent opponent of Misty Blue Simmes. Both were brought in by Jim Crockett in 1987 to compete on the Great American Bash card.
After her run with JCP ended in 1988, she would continue to work on the independent wrestling scene before retiring in the mid-1990s.
On behalf of the staff of Wrestleview, we extend our condolences to the family and friends of Kat LeRoux during this difficult time.
