Dwayne Duffy. The wrestler you’ve never heard of. How can that be?

After being convicted of manslaughter, to avoid legal repercussions, the WWF destroyed all evidence of his matches. While not the first wrestler to be removed from history, Dwayne’s conviction was controversial and many believed he should not have gone to jail, but the victim’s family was powerful and connected and the wrestling business was on top of the world. With so many great wrestlers during the Golden Age of wrestling, who would miss one more superstar from the 80’s? Who would risk a legal battle that could destroy the newly built empire, simply for a heel in a mask?

Many believed Duffy was dead, no one expected him to reappear in the MMA field well into his fifties. The story Vince couldn’t bury, the story that would not be forgotten.
