WWE inducted Jack Lanza into the Hall of Fame in 2006, where the company celebrated his career and his contribution to the industry. Lanza was one-half of The Blackjacks with Blackjack Mulligan in the American Wrestling Association (AWA) and the World Wide Wrestling Federation (WWWF).

During his time with AWA, he won the AWA World Tag Team Championship with Bobby Duncum. However, his most title wins came when he wrestled for NWA Big Time Wrestling where he won NWA American Heavyweight Championship, NWA American Tag Team Championship with Blackjack Mulligan, and a two-time NWA Brass Knuckles Championship winner.

Eventually, the legacy left by Jack Lanza will forever live in the hearts of the wrestling fans and everyone who was close to him.

We stand together with Jack’s family and wish all the luck and strength in this tough time. Eventually, wrestling ties the fans with these superstars.
