Dino Bravo

In one of the most chilling and tragic stories in wrestling, Canada’s own Dino Bravo went from the squared circle and seat crushing 715lbs* to drawing in with the group and finally losing his life as a result of it.

 

Rick Martel, in a RF Video High Spots shoot talk with, relates the story of Dino Bravo: “Dino had kind of painted himself in a corner…

He endeavored to stay in the WWF, anyway he simply demonstrated unfit; Vince didn’t wanna have him back. I review that I called Pat Patterson and I recommended that I team up with Dino – considering the way that I favored him.

I expressed, ‘I’ll take the thumps and do all the moving around and he can do the strong stuff… I’m sure we can make it work, you know?’ He expressed, ‘No, no… we basically feel that Dino doesn’t fit whatever else in our game plans… ‘

Dino delighted in the high lifestyle… he had a games Mercedes, he had a significant home, you know… and out of the blue wrestling was done.

Dino couldn’t be a 9 to 5 man… he didn’t have any business experience of any kind. Wrestling was for as far back as he can recollect. In addition, back then, WWF was the primary game around. So if he couldn’t do it for the WWF, what may he have the option to do?

His uncle [by marriage] was the pioneer of the mafia in Montreal. In addition, he was consistently saying, ‘Dino, come work for me… ‘”

The Cotroni Family was a bit of the Bonanno Crime Family branch out in Montreal, one of the “Five Families” that order formed bad behavior practices in New York City and past.

Dave Meltzer, in his book Tributes: Remembering Some of the World’s Greatest Wrestlers, adds to some degree more establishment to the record of Dino Bravo and his end:

“Inside wrestling, it was often assumed that Bravo’s name was associated with the Montreal underground market. Hit aunt Maria was the mate of Vic Cotroni, who had picked up reputation for being Montreal’s driving swarm back up parent.

Dino Bravo routinely worked as an escort for Paul Cotroni, a relative of Vic’s who was purportedly a person from the staggering underground market family.

Gossipy goodies potentially got more grounded when Gino Brito, his associate in a couple of associations including the close by common wrestling office, was caught as a segment of a development sharking ring.”

Rick Martel continues:

“I recall that we were in Europe and he confided in me. ‘Rick… I understand I could go into bad behavior and do incredible money… anyway I don’t wanna go that course… I know myself and I perceive what kind of individual I am… ‘

Dino was the kind of individual who continually expected to a consistently expanding degree. He knew himself and he knew his shrewd existences. Nevertheless, by then his commitments and lifestyle got too much…

I review the breaking point for him was where he expected to continue to get from his mom. That was a great deal for his pride to take.

Additionally, in those days in the mid 90s the [illegal] cigarette trafficking* in Canada started. Numerous people were doing it. So Dino got into that…

He went to see the Indians. The Indians had the stream so they could pass cigarettes across like crazy – or arms – whatever. Furthermore, the Indians were huge wrestling fans, you know? So when they saw Dino they took after, ‘Benevolent man..!’ They started overseeing him. So Dino had the syndication with the Indians.

He started doing really well.

Eventually, the cigarette business was doing so staggering that the cocaine people started making proper acquaintance, ‘conceivably there’s some money in there for us also… ‘

So the tremendous cocaine individual plainly went to see Dino and expressed, ‘Look, let me in on your cigarette plans and I’ll give you access on some cocaine deals… ‘

So what clearly happened is they did a comprehension… Dino had a $400,000 shipment in some appropriation community some spot and it stayed there for like, three days… and on the third day when the cocaine individual went to get it, the police were there.

So they were denouncing each other. Dino was expressing, ‘You should have gotten it on the foremost day and it would never have happened – you shouldn’t have let it remain there… ‘

There was a lot of warmth on Dino. This was seven days before he kicked the can.

It was a Wednesday. His better half and his daughter went to Ballet works out. He was watching Hockey on TV.

His better half found him that night.

She had his daughter in her arms – luckily, thank god, his daughter was snoozing so she didn’t see her dad. There was blood everywhere… on the rooftop. It was stunning.

They’d siphoned ten slugs in his brain.”

One of the bits of tattle spread during the time was that the shooter endeavored to shoot a “playful face” into the back of his head which is absolutely awful.

Martel continued, “There was no intensity of segment in his home… and it was the winter, so you could see there would [have been] impressions [in the snow outside]-yet there were none.

They had somebody… an inside person. It was in all likelihood someone who was watching hockey with him and expressed, ‘Hi look, Dino, I will go to the bathroom… ‘

They shot him from behind.

The criminologist uncovered to us that the remote control was free in his grip… they express that in case they shoot you from the front you [see it coming and] tense your muscles and [he would have gripped] that remote control [tightly at the motivation behind death].
