Pro Wrestling Legend Pampero Firpo Passes Away Aged 89

It is with sadness we report the death of Pampero Firpo aged 89.

Firpo was a mainstay of the California wrestling scene and even headlined Madison Square Garden in the 60’s against Pedro Morales. He held many NWA titles throughout his career, including the NWA Americas Heavyweight Championship three times.

His Daughter announced his death on Twitter

My beloved father, Pampero Firpo, (Juan Kachmanian), passed away today just a few months shy of his 90th birthday. As a professional wrestler for over 30 years, he thrilled fans around the world, wrestling in 21 different countries across 5 continents.

At home, he was loving, generous, and protective. He was faithful to God, devoted to his family, and made friends wherever he went. At the end, he expressed gratitude and peace for his extraordinary life well-lived.

Thank you to his fans, friends, and colleagues who have shared your memories, friendship, love, prayers, and support with my dad and our family. It means the world to us. God bless you.

Kachmanian popularized the catchphrase 'ohhh yeah!' which would later become associated with Randy Savage.
