There is another sad day in the world of professional fighting as the whole industry mourns Larry "The Ax" Hennig. A talented opponent himself, and father to Curt "Perfect Mr." Hennig and grandfather Curtis Axel, the current WWE superstar, "The Ax" spent a lot of life in the vaccination industry. He made quite an impact, and everyone from Eric Bischoff to today's top scores scratches on passing it.
Recently, WWE.com said on his death:
WWE is tired to learn that the famous patriarch, Superstar and Hennig, Larry, "The Ax" Hennig have died today at 82 years of age following a long illness and kidney failure.
Five-time team champion in the AWA, Hennig went to the world of sports entertainment under Verne Gagne's tutelage and crossing paths with some of the most notable performers at all times. Most famously, Hennig was among the brunoes of Bruno Sammartino for WWE's World Heavyweight Championship at Madison Square Garden sacred halls.
Although his own career was broken short because of injury, Hennig's legacy split two other generations thanks to his son, the WWE Hall of late Famer Mr. Perfect, grandson, former Intercontinental Curtis Axel Champion.
WWE extends its sympathy with Hennig's family, friends and supporters.

One of the earliest camps I attended was Harley Race in Missouri, 2007.
That's where I first met Joe and Larry Hennig. I'm lucky enough to have sat under Larry's learning tree on more than one occasion.
RIP, Ax. pic.twitter.com/eOZfJNMR0M

My most positive feeling for Hennig's family on passing Larry The Ax & # 39; Hennig. Too many memories and thoughts express here, but one hit at home. We spent a short time with each other this summer. I'd like to spend more.

There is not much of that generation of wrestlers that you do not hear anything bad about. But I've never heard a negative word about Larry Hennig. Never A super nice man in my own limited connection, too.
Colli Curt had a clear heartbreak, and I hope it's a peace now. https://t.co/XlubC0tFd9

I heard so many Larry Sailing "The Ax" stories when traveling with Curt that I can write a book. I also have great memories of myself. No one was looking up to their father more than Mr Perfect did The Ax! #RIPLarryHennig pic.twitter.com/ND8TlnysnW
