Death Of Don Duffy

Don Duffy passed away this month, but he lived to see his 80s and had a long life.

Duffy was mainly known for his work down south, though he made trips westward.

He was an especially arrogant heel and could provoke the fans to riot pitch on any given evening. He was also known for giving great and heat-provoking television interviews.
