News of the death of Mark "Rollerball" Rocco / Black Tiger broke on July 31, 2020:
My piece on him:http://slamwrestling.net/index.php/2020/07/31/british-legend-mark-rollerball-rocco-dies/
He was hugely influential, if under appreciated in North America, as he rarely came here.

When I first got into tape trading I saw so many Rollerball matches. He wasn’t Tiger Mask or Dynamite Kid but he was way ahead of his time. R.I.P.

He was the idol of The Dynamite Kid, who was the idol of Chris Benoit. I'm not sure if that's a good thing or a bad thing? In this situation, I'll look at the glass as half full.


RIP
Mark "Rollerball" Rocco / Black Tiger

Awesome worker!
