Cause of Death:
Murder


Death Summary: Adolfo Bresciano (aka Dino Bravo) was found shot in the face in his Vimont, Laval, Quebec mansion on March 11, 1993. It is believed that his role in a illegal cigarette smuggling ring in Canada led to his murder.

Who was Dino Bravo : Bravo was an Italian-born Canadian wrestler and self proclaimed “World’s Strongest Man”. His wrestling name “Dino Bravo” came from a tag team from the early 1960’s.

Bravo began his wrestling career in 1970, and was trained by Gino Brito, and often worked as part of a tag team with his teacher.

By the late 1970’s Bravo defeated Gene Kiniski in Toronto to win the new Canadian heavyweight title.

He had mainly worked for the Canadian promotions, but when the World Wrestling Federation bought it out in the early 1980’s, Bravo began working for the McMahon family.

After a few unsuccessful years in the WWF, Bravo changed his whole presence by dyeing his hair blonde and really playing up the Canadian angle. After his character change, he had a few successful tag team years before his retirement.
