Herb Gerwig, better known as Killer Karl Kox, a headliner in the 60s and 70, passed away this morning at the age of 80.
Gerwig suffered a massive heart attack on Oct. 20 and had a second heart attack, which was fatal, this morning while still hospitalized.
Besides being a headliner in a number of U.S. territories, he was one of the top villains during the heyday of pro wrestling in Australia and was considered one of the best ring psychologists and in-ring teachers of the modern era.
Both Ted DiBiase Sr. and Dick Murdoch heavily praised Kox as being the guy who taught them as much about what to do and when to do it in the ring by working with him of anyone they were in with.
