The pro wrestling world lost someone who was a part of many famous moments. John “Jack” Lotz has passed away at the age of 86.

Lotz was a referee for many big WWE matches including Hulk Hogan vs The Iron Sheik in MSG. He was also the official in the Roddy Piper vs Mr. T boxing match. He passed away on Saturday. No cause of death was revealed.
