OSWPOTD: Dino Bravo

Dino Bravo was born Adolfo Bresciano in 1948 in Quebec, Canada. He is probably most notable for his feuds with Hulk Hogan and the Ultimate Warrior as the tag team partner of Earthquake. Bravo billed himself "Canada's Strongest Man," and later, "World's Strongest Man."

Sadly, on March 11th, 1993, Bresciano was found shot to death in his Lival, Quebec home. He was gunned down gangland-style and apparently had been involved in a cocaine smuggling ring. That, though, was never proven.

He was the first and only wrestler to hold the WWF's Canadian Championship.
