Dino Bravo

Born August 6, 1948
Died March 11, 1993
He was 44 years old

Dino Bravo is another wrestler likely not to be remembered for how good he was by current fans. He, like Chris Adams, was brutally shot to death.

Bravo began his career as a high-flyer. He was revered as a hero in his native country of Canada. Bravo ended his wrestling days as a bulked-up big man.

I remember Bravo at the end of his second stint in the WWF with the blond hair and huge arms and chest. In some way by forming the new Dream Team with Greg Valentine, he helped to create Brutus "the Barber" Beefcake.
