Pro wrestling legend Jackie Fargo passed away this morning at age 85.
Fargo had been struggling with congenital heart disease issues. He was hospitalized last week, where he remained in critical condition.
WWE Hall of Famer Jerry "The King" Lawler took to his Twitter to remember his mentor:

Without the Fabulous Jackie Fargo, there would never have been a King Jerry Lawler. RIP Jackie. pic.twitter.com/29C9bEg06z— Jerry Lawler (@JerryLawler) June 24, 2013
