This one came out of the blue. He was in decent shape last September when he came to our Titans in Toronto III dinner.

Didn't he train a bunch of guys too, including The Highlanders most recently?

R.I.P.

It's almost wrong to associate him with *that* side of the "family".  R.I.P.

One of my favorite all-time heels.  He just looked downright mean.

Pretty sad R.I.P. Waldo.

BTW I love that picture of him dressed up in the Nazi SS uniform. Great stuff. You won't see that anymore lol.

He's just a shade before my time (I remember his mid 70s run in the WWWF) ~ I assume he was "connected" (storyline) to Fritz Von Erich at one time?

Billed as Fritz's brother, and when the legendary Lance hit the scene it was explained that he was Waldo's son.  See, it all made sense.

Waldo and Fritz were kayfabe brothers in the 60s, hence when "cousin Lance" was brought in as the replacement Von Erich he was billed as Waldo's son.
