Charlie Fulton passed away at 67

Gary Fulton, one of the best known of the prelim pro wrestlers in the 70s and early 80s as Charlie Fulton from Marion, OH, passed away last night at the age of 67.

During his career, Fulton wrestled everyone from Bruno Sammartino to Antonio Inoki, and in most of the major territories and was known as something of an Iron Man performer for never missing matches due to injuries.

He also worked under a mask as part of the Mighty Yankees in Tennessee with partner Frank Morrell, as The Black Demon in WWF in the early 80s and as Mr. USSR in Japan as the tag team partner of Alexis Smirnoff.

Fulton had suffered from heart issues for years, and worked as a prison guard after retiring from wrestling in 1985.
