Default Earthquake 1963 -2006

John “Earthquake” Tenta has passed away at the age of 42 after a lengthy battle with bladder cancer. Tenta is survived by his wife and three kids.

Tenta performed for both World Wrestling Entertainment and World Championship Wrestling throughout the 90s. He made multiple appearances on wrestling’s grandest stage, participating in matches at WrestleManias VI, VII, VIII, X and X-Seven.

In 1992, Earthquake and his partner Typhoon, collectively known as "The Natural Disasters”, defeated Money Inc. to capture the World Tag Team Championship. Prior to his career in professional wrestling, Tenta made a name for himself in Japan as a highly accomplished Sumo wrestler.

Was a big part of WWE's boom period of the mid 80s into the early 90s. Was a good headliner and had a good tag team with Typhoon aka Tugboat, The Natural Disaters. R.I.P. Earthquake.

R.I.P. John Tenta.

I enjoyed reading the things that he would post on Wrestlecrap. Hearing RD talk about him and what a great person he was. He seemed to be a wonderful human being and put his heart and soul into his career. I remember him shaking the ground when I watched wrestling as a kid, and I used to jump up and down with him.

My condolences to his wife and kids.
