He then joined the WWWF (WWF/WWE) in 1967 and won the International Tag Team Championship alongside Bruno Sammartino, and later the World Tag Team Championship with Victor Rivera and Shane Douglas.
He then became a trainer to a number of wrestlers who made names for themselves, most notably Mick Foley, as well as Shane Douglas and Brian Hildebrand.
We send our condolences to DeNucci’s family, friends, and all those affected by his passing.
