This is the fourteenth in a series of drawings dedicated to my childhood heroes, the WWE Fallen Superstars.
Dino Bravo, Canada’s Strongest Man, was a WWF staple throughout the 80s for me growing up. Dino Bravo was a true strongman having been known to bench press up to 500 pounds and often claimed to have lifted 715 pounds, a world record at the time. Dino Bravo’s death is perhaps the most unusual death of any WWF wrestler. Dino Bravo’s real name is Adolfo Bresciano. He was the nephew by marriage of Montreal crime boss Vic Cotroni, and was believed by authorities to be involved in his organization for some time. It is also widely believed that his alleged role in an illegal cigarette smuggling ring in Canada led to his murder. He was shot 17 times, 7 in the head and 10 in his chest and abdomen area while watching hockey in his Vimont, Laval, Quebec home. Crazy I know!
