We are sad to report that former WWWF Champion Pedro Morales has passed away at 76 after battling health issues for several years, including Parkinson’s disease. The news broke via Hugo Savinovich.
In addition to being a former WWF World Heavyweight Champion, he is also a former Tag Team and Intercontinental Champion which would make him the first Triple Crown winner in company history.
Morales won championships in several promotions but most fans would probably remember his time in the WWWF/WWF as a wrestler and later as a color commentator on the Spanish-language version of WWF Superstars.
🚨🚨🚨ÚLTIMA HORA🚨🚨🚨Lamentamos informarle que el miembro del Salón de la Fama de la WWE y el primer Campeón Triple Corona en la historia de la WWE, Don Pedro Morales, falleció hoy a sus 76 años. Nuestros más sentido pésame a su familia y que descanse en paz. ¡Gracias por tanto Don Pedro!
