BREAKING: World Famous ICON Just Passed Away… RIP BROTHER

It is with great sadness to report that former professional wrestler and National Wrestling Alliance champion, “Dirty” Dick Slater has died. He was just 67 years old.

The WWE confirmed his death and issued a statement which read, “WWE is saddened to learn that Dick Slater has passed away at age 67. Slater was a prolific competitor during the 1970s and 1980s in Georgia Championship Wrestling, Mid-South Wrestling and Mid-Atlantic Wrestling, where he teamed with WWE Hall of Famer Bob Orton and had a memorable rivalry with WWE Hall of Famer Jake ‘The Snake’ Roberts. Slater competed in WWE from 1986 to 1987 before moving to Japan and finishing his in-ring career in WCW. WWE extends its condolences to Slater’s family, friends and fans.”

The NWA posted a tribute to the famed wrestler on Twitter.

“The National Wrestling Alliance sends its deepest sympathies and condolences to the family, friends and fans of Dick Slater. As tough as they come. A decorated champion of the @NWA across every territory he wrestled including being United States, Mid-Atlantic and TV champion.”

FOX News reports that Slater, who was born Richard Van Slater, had a long wrestling career that spanned three decades. His time in the ring came to an end in 1996, after he sustained a terrible back injury while in the World Championship Wrestling league.

But the former WWE star struggled after retirement.

According to the New York Daily News, Slater was arrested in 2003 for stabbing his then-girlfriend, Theresa Halbert, in the leg, arm and back with a knife. The wrestler later said that he was under the influence of pain medications when the stabbing took place.

A year later, Slater was sentenced to one year house of arrest and two years of probation, in addition to paying his ex restitution fees.

And back in the early ‘80s, Slater was involved in another violent altercation at a bar in Atlanta, in which wrestler Wahoo McDaniel accidentally shot him in the leg.

“When the police got there, I told them that a sniper shot me… to save Wahoo,” Slater told Mid-Atlantic Gateway in an interview. Despite the injury, Slater returned to the ring within three weeks.

Former wrestling superstar Ric Flair also honored Slater in a tweet which read, “So Sad To Hear About The Passing Of My Good Friend Dick Slater Who Was A Great Wrestler And One Of The Legit Toughest Guys Of All Time.”

We send our deepest condolences to his family and friends.

Rest in peace brother.

GOD BLESS.
