MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Verne Gagne, one of professional wrestling's most celebrated performers and promoters, has died. He was 89.

Gagne died Monday at his daughter's home in the Twin Cities area, according to longtime friend Gene Okerlund, a pro wrestling announcer who was inducted into the World Wrestling Entertainment Hall of Fame with Gagne in 2006. Gagne had Alzheimer's disease.

"Verne was one of the pioneers," said Okerlund, 72. "He put (pro wrestling) on the map in the early days when no one had seen it before."

Gagne won several regional championships after turning pro in 1950 before heading to the newly formed American Wrestling Association, based in Minneapolis, in 1960, the WWE said.

In the 1960s and 1970s, Gagne became a promoter and eventually the sole owner of the AWA. He remained an active competitor until the early 1980s, holding the AWA World Heavyweight Championship title 10 times between 1960 and 1981.

The AWA "cranked out" a lot of stars, Okerlund said, including Hulk Hogan, Mad Dog Vachon and Nick Bockwinkel. It also was the breeding ground for future WWE stars, including Jesse "The Body" Ventura, Bobby "The Brain" Heenan and Pat Patterson, according to the WWE.

I hadn't heard about Verne Gagne. I met him once. A few years ago he accidentally killed a nursing home resident by body slamming the guy. No charges were ever filed because neither Gagne or the victim (who survived a few days before dying from the injuries) could remember the incident since both were suffering from dementia.
