Today marks the 11 year anniversary of the untimely passing of WWE Hall of Famer Mr. Perfect Curt Hennig. Curt was one of the best sellers in the business during the 1980's and 1990's, it was like he was a natural in the ring. Maybe some might say it was like he was born to do this which maybe in a way he was noting the fact that Curt's dad Larry Hennig was a big name wrestlers during the height of the territory system mostly known for his time in the AWA. In a way Larry being loyal to Verne opened the door for Larry's son Curt Hennig to follow in his dad's footsteps and enter the wrestling business. When Curt arrived in the AWA it was almost instantly that people saw that he had tons of potential and could be champion one day. Though Curt did become champion I really think that if given the chance to accomplish more then Curt would be a name fans still talk about today and not ask who but I think he could have a been a top star in the 1980's and early 90's with any company. Hennig sadly passed on in early 2003 after a short stint in TNA the year before. I know I have said this a lot but nobody has ever said a bad word about Curt, all I have heard about him is he was a good, funny man, that liked to rib everyone. Curt is surely missed by all the fans, friends, & family that was able to the honor to get to know him for time they did. We lost a great one way to soon I think it's fair to say we lost the Perfect Man way too soon. RIP Curt Hennig (He wasn't just the best he was absolutely Perfect)
