RIP - Bill Robinson (1939 - 2014)

Jack Shannon of Sceintific Wrestling reports:
I am unbelievably sad to report that my very good friend Billy Robinson passed away today. I hadn't heard from him in days so I contacted his apartment complex to check in on him. When I called back for a progress report the apartment manager put the police on the phone, it seems he passed peacefully in his sleep. He was a lion of a man, bigger than life in so many ways, my wife and I named our youngest son, Lliam in his honor. You will be sorely missed, my friend. Thank you so much for living the life you did.
Maybe I should put his name as "Billy", but in Japan, he was known as "Bill".

He held main titles not only in the UK and Japan but also in the US, Canada, and Australia. Truly one of the greatests ever.
