Former WWF & ECW Wrestler Doug Furnas Dies
by Matthew Harrak on March 4, 2012

Mid-1990s WWF/ECW tag wrestler Doug Furnas reportedly died Friday at the age of 50. The word from Knoxville, Tennessee is he was battling Parkinson’s disease at the time of his death. In addition to runs in WWF and ECW, Furnas wrestled in Japan and Mexico during the early 1990s. WWE announcer Jim Ross commented on Twitter Saturday, “Sad to hear of the death of fellow Oklahoman Doug Furnas. Doug was a powerhouse, amazing drop kick, & damn good man. A sad day. RIP friend.”

Quick Quip: Furnas’ team with Philip Lafon in the late-90s WWF & ECW was one I enjoyed but they never seemed to reach their full potential in the States.
