Tom Zenk Dies at 59

Tom Zenk, once a bodybuilder who turned to wrestling in the 1990s has passed away on December 9th at the age of 59.  There are few details at this time.

Zenk attended high school with Curt Hennig and Rick Rude and became Mr. Minnesota before training to become a wrestler.  Two years later, he was signed by the WWF to tag with Rick Martel.  They were going to be the top babyface team until Zenk quit the WWF over money.  Eventually, he was signed by WCW and worked as The Z Man, winning the Tag Team Championship with Brian Pillman.  When the team broke up, he became enhancement talent and was used as such until the end of his career.

Queen KB – I only vaguely remember Zenk, but it’s sad to see any life pass so early.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.
