I was a huge fan of John's I want this locked so no one repeats my thanx to Mr. Tenta
Ode to Tenta By Matt "thecrap" Kruger
From the first day I saw John, I knew he would go big From Earthquake to Golga that guy with the South Park jig He never won any titles but we didn't care He was a Showman, he liked that he was there! So we say goodbye to John A.K.A Earthquake Your Hand I would have loved to shake!
Today is a sad day for me. Three yeas ago today I lost my father to cancer. The same disease that claimed the life of John "Earthquake" Tenta. I know what his family went through.
That's probably the main reason that Tenta's death touched me more than other wrestlers who have died. While I'm always sad to hear of a wrestlers passing, I felt much closer to this one as I was (am) still recovering from my own loss.
