Thoughts and prayers to the Gerwig family & friends.

"Karl Jr." logged onto the board on Halloween.
Maybe we'll hear from him in the not too distant future.

If not, hopefully he'll see this.

Hey guys its been a while  , I would like to personally thank everyone for they're prayers and support over the past couple of weeks. On October 20 my dad suffered a massive heart attack followed by a stoke while in CCU and today he passed away.

 While calling all the old wrestlers today they all had great stories to tell about ribs he pulled on the boys, that's what he loved to do up until the day he got sick. . He had a great life and a great career doing what he loved . I couldn't have asked for a better childhood or a better dad.

Wrestling Legend Killer Karl Kox Passes Away
By Daniel Pena
Nov 10, 2011 - 8:31:53 PM

The official website of the Cauliflower Alley Club states Killer Karl Kox, a headliner in the 1960s and 1970s, died Thursday at the age of 80.

Kox, whose real name is Herb Gerwig, suffered a fatal heart attack Thursday morning while hospitalized. He had been hospitalized due to a massive heart attack he suffered on October 20, 2011.

The National Wrestling Association issued a statement regarding his passing: "The Cauliflower Alley Club is reporting the death earlier today of Killer Karl Kox. Kox wrestled all over the world and was a huge star in Australia, feuding with the likes of Spiros Arion, Mark Lewin, and others. Stateside, he held many titles, including the NWA National, Central States, Florida, and Georgia championships. Our thoughts go out to his family and friends."

Jim Ross commented on the legendary grappler's death on Twitter.

"Killer Karl Kox, who died today at 80, was an awesome wrestler. His matches vs Dick Murdoch were text book classics. Blessed to see Karl at Cauliflower Alley Club," he wrote.

SLAM! Wrestling has published a story chronicling Kox's legendary career.

Sorry to hear this Karl, but it sounds like you have the right outlook.  Your dad lived a life he loved and obviously has a son who cared deeply for him.  Prayers brother.

This is a great read.  Thank you, bro.

I didn't realize that using the initials "K.K.K." was an intentional, face-value gimmick.  That really surprised me.

Also, this part is something else:

Quote
And Kox was never hesitant to speak his mind, or worse, as happened to Bill Watts.

" Dick Murdoch and I drew, like, 43,000 people to the SuperDome in New Orleans, and I hate to tell you what he gave me for a payoff," KKK said of Watts, the promoter for the Mid-South territory. "He took me up to his house, and showed me his brand new house. I walked out there to the diving board and pissed in his pool. 'What are you doing that for?' 'I built this damn pool!'"

Haha..that's excellent.

I really lol'd at this, too:

Quote
After he quit the ring, Kox put his talents to use keeping an eye on jail prisoners for the sheriff's department in Dallas. "I used to tell them, 'You know why I'm wearing white and you're wearing blue? Because they haven't caught me yet.' Oh, they liked that."

What he actually said when Watts asked him what he was doing he said peeing in my pool,  I paid for it.

When he was working for the sheriff's department,  the prisoners used to say " I used to watch you on TV. " and he'd say "now im watching you."  He thought that was funny.

I just found this on you tube, a wrestling group from here in Texas gave him an award back in 2005 and this is the video they put together.
