RIP...PWInsider.com wrote:Lucha Libre legend Karloff Lagarde past away sometime around 9 AM this morning at the age of 79. Karloff began his career in 1950 and worked into the early 80’s and had a tremendous career where he was a 4-time Mexican National Welterweight Champ, 3-time NWA Welterweight Champ, Mexican National Middleweight Champ, and ½ of the Mexican National Tag Champs with his partner Rene Guarjardo where they were one of the most dominant tag teams in the history of Lucha Libre with 23 years under their belts as a team. Lagarde had some big matches in his career where he lost his hair against such notable legends as Perro Aguayo, Rey Mendoza, & El Solitario and took the hair of Cavernario Galindo & El Impostor. Lagarde also had some big victories against the likes of Black Shadow, Blue Demon, Gory Guerrero, Huracan Ramirez, & Enrique Llanes. Lagarde’s best year as a wrestler was in 1964 where he won the Mexican National Middleweight & Welterweight Titles and NWA Welterweight Title and was named the wrestler of the year beating out El Santo. Descanse en Paz Señor Lagarde.
