Gulf Coast Wrestling Headliner Ken Lucas Dies Aged 73

Legendary professional wrestler Ken Lucas died this week in Pensacola aged 73.

Famed for his finisher, "The Sleeper Hold," the Gulf Coast wrestling headliner had been in poor health for some time and was reported to have suffered a fall on Monday Night.

During his career he held numerous titles, including the City of Pensacola Heavyweight Championship and NWA Gulf Coast Championship. He wrestled greats such as Ric Flair, Jerry Lawler, Harley Race and "Bullet Bob" Armstrong.

"He was one of my favorite guys in the world," Armstrong said. "It broke my heart when I heard the news. He was smaller than many of the heavyweights, but had a heavyweight's heart and a surgeon's skill, Armstrong said.
