WWE NEWS: Another Legend Passes Away – See Official Statement By WWE On His Death…

It is so sad to announce the death of another superstar whose talent and personal life have affected the lives of others positively. His death is indeed a regret and nothing more.

Muhammad Ali is a boxing legend. He has been under treatment for some time due to respiratory tract infection, alas! He has been reported dead at the age of 74. He was a well known fellow. It reported that The WWE pays homage to his household and below is the statement issued by the WWE according to sportskeeda.com;

“WWE is saddened to learn that two-time world heavyweight boxing champion Muhammad Ali passed away at age 74 on June 3, 2016.

The Louisville native won six Kentucky Golden Glove Championships and the gold medal for the United States as a light heavyweight in Rome’s 1960 Summer Olympics before beginning his professional career.

Ali also made history for his historic boxer vs. wrestler match against WWE Hall of Famer Antonio Inoki in Tokyo on June 26, 1976. The fight is regarded as a precursor to modern mixed martial arts.

In 1985, Ali made his mark in WWE history when he was one of the special guest referees for the main event of the first WrestleMania at Madison Square Garden. The bout featured WWE Champion Hulk Hogan and pop culture icon Mr. T against “Mr. Wonderful” Paul Orndorff and “Rowdy” Roddy Piper. During the contest, Ali climbed up onto the ring apron and took a swing at Piper.
WWE extends its condolences to Ali’s family, friends and fans.”
