Robert Bruce Passes Away

-- Ric Gillespie

Earlier today, New Zealander Robert Bruce, most famous for his runs with Steve Rickard's Commonwealth title and his appearances on Rickard's 'On The Mat' television program (when that promotion was on fire in the 1970s), has died in Auckland.

Bruce wrestled for about ten-years (1967-1977), before leaving the sport because injuries began to take their toll, then moved into acting and eventually became an agent.

Bruce, originally born in Scotland, to the end, was so protective of his private life, cause of death, real name, and age are unknown.
