Kevin Greene passes away
WWE is saddened to learn that Kevin Greene passed away today at the age of 58.
Near the end of a career as one of the NFL’s most feared pass rushers, Greene entered the squared circle for WCW. Upon his arrival, Greene teamed with fellow NFL player Steve McMichael and would go on to share the ring with some of the biggest names in sports-entertainment. The Pro Football Hall of Famer teamed with Roddy Piper and Ric Flair against Kevin Nash, Scott Hall and Syxx in a victory at Slamboree in May of 1997. In his last run with WCW, Greene teamed with Goldberg against nWo Black & White.
WWE extends its condolences to Greene’s family and friends.
