Tenta Dead

The longtime professional wrestler John Tenta, who was best known for wrestling under the name Earthquake for the WWF in the early-to-mid '90s, has died at the age of 42, after a long battle with cancer. As Earthquake, Tenta once put Hulk Hogan out of action for several months, and was later known for crushing Jake "The Snake" Roberts' snake in the ring.

In his post-WWF career, Tenta wrestled everywhere under many names- so many, in fact, that this site claims to be an alpabetical "Complete Guide to Every Wrestler Ever," and simply lists one of Tenta's nicknames under each letter of the alphabet.
