WWE Hall of Famer Maurice "Mad Dog" Vachon has passed away earlier this morning according to a report by SLAM! Wrestling. He was 84.

Vachon has been in poor health for many years, most of it stemming from a 1987 hit-and-run accident where Vachon was struck by a driver, which resulted in the amputation of his leg. Most recently he battled memory issues.
