Professional Wrestler. He was one of the popular members of the World Wresting Federation in the 1980s, partnering first with wrestler Jesse Ventura in a tag-team, then later with wrestler Texan Dick Murdoch. His persona during his tenure as a wrestler was first as a lether-jacket wearing motorbiker, then halfway through his career as "Adorable Adrian Adonis" attired in pink clothing, bleached hair, eye makeup and rouge. He died in a minivan accident in July 1988 in Lewisporte, Newfoundland, Canada that took the lives of two other wrestlers.
