    Paul Orndorff, aka “Mr. Wonderful,” one of the greats from the World Wrestling Federation’s 1980s heyday, has died. He was 71.

    Frequent foe Hogan took to Twitter on hearing the news of Orndorff’s death and wrote, “thank you for always making me fight for everything in our matches.” He ended with, “heaven just got even more Wonderful.”

    Another legend from the sport’s golden era, The Iron Sheik, posted his own all-caps tribute to Orndorff.

    Loved watching the WWF Saturday s growing up in the 70s and 80s. They had a great roster. IIRC Orndorff was a heel with Roddy Piper and Bob Orton for awhile. And the "Paula" chants lol.
    RIP Mr Ormdorff and thank you for the entertainment.

    Edit: apologies to KD for the *lol".

              Sad to hear Mr. #1derful is no longer with us! It’s also sad that no one will ever, ever look like him. The perfect body in all of human history is gone. I guess it was technically gone by the 1990s, but it helped motivate me when going to the gym as a skinny teenager..

              RIP Mr. #1derful!

                My dad watches that stuff 5 hrs a week. 3hrs every Mon. & 2hrs every Fri.
                I can't get over how scripted it is, never could, never will

                It doesn't seem like "pro" wrestlers last too long after retirement

                I'm 100% sure all the drugs, roids & booze or broads
                all contributed to it

                many died broke too

                RIP Paul
