Kevin Greene passed away yesterday at the age of 58-years-old. His cause of death is still unknown at this time. Greene’s passing meant a lot to the sporting world, and the pro wrestling world mourned as well.
Ric Flair and Greene spent time in the ring together. While the Nature Boy was battling for his life in the hospital a few years ago, Kevin Greene sent him a very encouraging text.
Greene sent Flair a photo of them in the ring. The message said: “Show this to Nature Boy. I want some of his ass when he comes back. Sackmaster gonna make Naitch pay!!!!”
Flair included that text from Kevin Greene along with a heartfelt note.
Still Trying To Process All This… Kevin Sent This To Wendy When I Was In The Hospital. This Is The Kind Of Man He Was! So Thankful That He Made It To The Hall of Fame. My Condolences To His Beautiful Family!
Kevin Greene’s passing was sudden, and it came during a terrible time right before the Holidays. Our hearts go out to Greene’s family, friends, and fans at this time. He will never be forgotten as he was able to make a mark in so many forms of sport and entertainment. Ric Flair certainly won’t forget him.
RIP Kevin Greene.
