NFL Hall Of Famer & Former WCW Wrestler Kevin Greene Passes Away

He tangled with the likes of Kevin Nash, Ric Flair & The Giant...

The NFL announced last night that legendary pass rusher Kevin Greene has passed away at the age of 58. No cause of death has been announced as of writing. 

Greene accrued 160 sacks over his 15-season career. He made five Pro Bowl appearances and was a two-time All-Pro. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall Of Fame in 2016. 

He is well known in professional wrestling for his occasional stints in WCW between 1996 and 1998. He made his debut at The Great American Bash 1996 where he teamed with former NFL player Steve McMichael against Ric Flair & Arn Anderson. Greene came up short in the match, though, and McMichael turned on him to join the Four Horsemen. 

Greene returned for another match at Slamboree 1997 and teamed with Ric Flair and Roddy Piper against Kevin Nash, Scott Hall & Syxx in a winning effort. He then exacted revenge on McMichael one month later at The Great American Bash.

Greene wrestled in his final WCW match in the Summer of 1998 and was defeated by The Giant at Bash At The Beach.

Cultaholic extends its condolences to Kevin Greene's family and friends.
