368. Scott Irwin

Scott Irwin spent a good time of his career teaming up with his brother Bill Irwin in various promotions either in a mask as the Super Destroyer in the South or as one half of the biker team, the Long Riders.  He was a tough customer who may not have been the most talented in the ring but looked like the guy at the end of the bar you would least want to mess with.  Despite his success with his brother, it was with another partner early in his career, that he captured WWE Tag Team gold when he donned the persona of Eric; one half of the Yukon Lumberjacks.  He died at the age of 35 from a brain tumor and likely would have had many good years in the ring left in him.
