Thomas “Tiny” Lister (Zeus) Has Passed Away

It is with heavy hearts that we must report that Tiny Lister passed away earlier today.  He first came to prominence as an actor – appearing opposite in the Hulk Hogan vehicle “No Holds Barred” as Zeus.  He would actually bring that gimmick to the WWF and continue his feud with Hulk Hogan for a while there.  He also appeared for WWC in 1990 and in WCW as Z-Gangsta in 1996.

He would continue his acting career after leaving wrestling behind and gain far greater fame as an actor.  His cause of death is currently unknown.  He was 62.

 

Botch Take:  Wow.  2020 is continuing to take no prisoners.  His run as Zeus in WWE was unremarkable and his run in WCW wasn’t much better but as an actor, he really shined.  By all accounts, he was also a really wonderful human being in real life.  Our thoughts are with his family and all who knew and loved him.
