    Well-known professional wrestler and Bay area resident Mike Hegstrand passes away
    Monday, October 20th

    Hegstrand visited the Bay News 9 studios in August.

    The world of professional wrestling is mourning death of one of its veteran performers.

    Pinellas County resident Mike Hegstrand – who was one half of a popular tag-team known as the Road Warriors -Legion of Doom - passed away in his sleep early Sunday morning he was 46. Cause of death has not been determined.

    Several years ago Hegstrand developed a heart condition called Cardiomyopathy and had recently worked his way back to the ring. Back in the 1980s Hegstrand, who went by the name ‘Hawk’ when he wrestled, teamed with partner Joe Laurinatis to form one of the most dominant tag-teams in pro wrestling history.

    Hegstrand, who appeared on the Sports Connection with Rock Riley in August, was a born-again Christian. He had recently worked with wrestler-turned-evangelist Ted DiBiase on several wrestling-themed religious events.
