Doug Lindzy, a 60s and 70s star who wrestled under a number of names but was best known as Doug "The Pro" Gilbert, as well as The Masked Professional, passed away yesterday.
He was 76. No further details are available. Gilbert wrestled throughout the world, but was best known in Georgia, where he was a top babyface contender for world champion Gene Kiniski.
He had been living for years in Omaha, where he had also wrestled frequently.
Eddie Gilbert's younger brother, Doug, who wrestles in Tennessee, was believed to have been named after Doug Lindzy.
