News “Outlaw” Ron Bass Dead At 68 Posted on March 7, 2017 1 min read 0 0 2 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Google+ Share on Reddit Share on Pinterest Share on Linkedin Share on Tumblr “Outlaw” Ron Bass, who wrestled from 1971 to 1989, and had a prominent run in the WWF, has died in Florida. He had been hospitalized last week with an apparent burst appendix, and died on Tuesday. He had major runs in Georgia and in Florida — especially fighting against Barry Windham, as well as in Oregon. One of his greatest opponents was “Wildfire” Tommy Rich. “Tommy and I had many battles over the North American title, and drew a lot of money with it,” said Bass. IGNITE fans may remember him from a particularly amusing promo video that he did for us last year while at the Treasure Coast Freakshow. Our condolences to his friends and family. You will surely be missed.
