RIP: Cowboy Lang

Cowboy Lang, midget professional wrestler in the 1960s-1980s, was found dead in Portland, Oregon January 4th, 2007. His age was said to be either 60 or 70.

He worked infrequent spot shows as recently as 1998 and was well liked especially by the office staff of the WWE who would book him whenever possible.

In 1994, he, along with Pat Patterson, Pepper Martin, and H.B. Haggerty had a mini-reunion in Seattle where he captivated all the reunion guests with his amazing stories. Unfortuantely, he fell on hard times the last decade of his life and very little is known about his family or there whereabouts.

The CAC send our condolences to the friends and family of Cowboy Lang.
