From Meltzer,

Long-time WWE regular Chief Jay Strongbow passes away

Joseph Scarpa, better known Chief Jay Strongbow, the No. 2 babyface during the Pedro Morales title run in the early 70s, was reported to have passed away today according to Jim Ross on twitter.

Scarpa, who was a top star under his own name in the 60s in particular, was 83.  He got his biggest career break while already in his 40s as a Native American babyface in the WWWF, and would headline tons of small town and mid-sized market shows in both singles and tags against the top heels of the era.

He retired from the ring shortly after the company expanded nationally, but worked into the 90s as an agent and producer.

Not really a good worker, but I've always been a big fan of his 70's WWWF stuff.

RIP

RIP  Scarpa/Strongbow

Alot of memories from watching wrestling as a kid dealt with the Pride of Pawhuska, Oklahoma.

R.I.P.  Absolute WWWF legend regardless of his work.  He's one of the few guys who Vince will give a big tribute to, even over guys on the active roster.  Get ready for lots of videos Friday and Monday on the Chief.

Disagree. 30 second blurb with some smaltzy piano music. The WWE Universe does not know or care about Italian Injuns who rassled 30 years ago.

The best Italian pretending to be an Indian ever is probably this guy below.

It's still real to him, dammit.

RIP Chief Jay.
