I never knew about them rumours. Now you mention it he looks nothing like his dad and the rock doesn't look like his dad is full 100% black.

The rumours are that his real father was Lars Anderson. His mother definitely had an affair with Anderson, it's just whether the dates match up 100% or not.

Rock's mom is somewhat light skinned,if she had offspring with Lars Anderson it seems very unlikely the child would have Rock's skin color.

Bobby Kay, born Romeo Cormier, who wrestled largely in Canadian territories, has died.  He was 70.  Mostly he appeared under that name but had a run in the NWA Toronto territory as Terry Kay.  He was often paired with brother Rudy Kay (Jean-Louis Cormier), though he also held the NWA Canadian TV title as a singles competitor.  Other siblings included Leo Burke (Leonce Cormier) and the Beast (Yvon Cormier).

Hercules Ayala, big star in Puerto Rico during the 80s who also did some work for New York and Stampede, dead at 69. I was watching his match with Randy Savage just the other week:

5 time CZW champ Justice Pain dead at 41. Shocking that a man who wrestled in so many deathmatches dies so young, I know...

Carlos Rocha (1927) - Wrestled for the WWF back in the 50s.

 

Carlos Rocha dead at 93. Meltzer said he was the oldest living name wrestler to have worked in North America, with Cowboy Bob Ellis (91) now the holder of that title.

2017 list held up quite well till recently. And as is usual with wrestlers, more popped out from behind the sofa so the oldest (known to be alive list) looks a bit like:

 

Vicky Askew (1920) - Vince's mum.

Joe D'orazio (1922) - World of Sport ref, wrestler

Bill Mercer (1926) -  WCCW commentator

"Cowboy" Bob Ellis (1929) -

Joe Cornelius (1929) - British wrestler who retired in 1967. Might be born in 1928 instead.

Samson Burke (1929) - Wrestled briefly in the 1950s, fought Lou Thesz.

Len Rossi (1930) - NWA Hall of Famer who won their tag titles 14 times back when it mattered.

Johnny DeFazio (1930) - former WWWF Junior Heavyweight champ.

John Lees (1930) - the bodybuilder. Apparently a wrestler.

Dave Kidney (1931) - Allegedly held the British Featherweight Title, a title that even British wrestling anoraks struggle to find the lineage for. Might have made it up to get on the BBC.

Tony Marino (1931) - former tag partner of Bruno Sammartino.

Hank Garrett (1931)  - The Minnesota Farm Boy. Quit wrestling to become an actor.

 

You have to go to 1932 to find folk who will 100% get a DDP QO in Dominic "trained Mick Foley" Denucci, Gene "trained everyone" laBell and Danny "dementia ridden" Hodge.

I think D'Orazio might just get a QO solely because he's the last tie to 50s British wrestling still out there. Dave Kidney is an absolute con man fwiw, that documentary on him from about a decade ago is unintentional comedy of the highest order.

There's a line in the last WON where Meltzer seems to imply that Pat Patterson is suffering from some form of dementia.
