EDMONTON, AB: Bobby Kay, a member of the legendary Cormier family and a former Stampede Wrestling Tag Team Champion, has passed away at 70 years old.
Kay was the younger brother of fellow Canadian wrestling icons The Beast, Rudy Kay and Leo Burke.
First stepping foot in the ring in 1967, Kay began his training in Calgary under the legendary Stu Hart. In his early career, Kay worked under a variety of names, including Norton Jackson and Terry Martin. It was under that alias that Kay and brother Leo, then working as Tommy Martin, captured the Central States version of the NWA North American Tag Team Championships. It was the first of many titles Kay won throughout his decorated career, including two reigns with the Stampede Wrestling Tag Team Championships, five with the ESA International Tag Team Championships, and, in 1974, the NWA Central States Heavyweight Championship.
In 1990, Kay retired from professional wrestling to spend more time with his family.
The WCSN passes on our condolences to Kay’s family and loved ones.
