We are saddened to learn that WWE Hall of Famer and wrestling legend, Pedro Morales has passed away today following a courageous battle with Parkinson’s Disease.
He was 76 years old when the cold hands of death fell upon him.
Pedro Morales will go down as one of the very best Puerto Rican pro wrestlers of all-time and as a wrestler who paved the way for Latin American based wrestlers to break into the wrestling business, particularly the WWE. He broke the mold for becoming the first ever Latin-based Intercontinental Champion in WWE’s history.
He was also a champion for World Wrestling Council (WWC) in Puerto Rico, along with accolades and accomplishments in the NWA and AWA as well. He worked as a commentator for WWE’s Spanish related programming and also as a road agent in his latter years. He also did some work for WCW around this time as well.
News broke of Pedro’s death following a Facebook post by longtime WWE Spanish Announcer and close friend, Hugo Savinovich. Pedro passed away today following a long fought battle with Parkinson’s Disease.
Pedro is a former Triple Crown champion for the champion, having served as a former WWE World, Intercontinental and Tag Team Champion. Pedro was inducted in the WWE Hall of Fame as part of the class of 1995.
On his passing away, WWE Hall Of Famer Ric Flair has paid tribute, saying, may his soul rest in peace.
