A rather disgusting incident took place during the eulogy for Verne Gagne, who passed away late last month. His son Greg Gagne and Mean Gene Okerlund were the two key speakers at the funeral. For whatever reasons, Bob Backlund rushed to the stage, took the microphone and began cutting a heel promo. Many that attended the event said that it was ridiculously out of place and unwarranted. Backlund has received a lot of heat for the incident.

While his actual funeral will be held later this week in Guadalajara, there have been a couple of ceremonies already held to honor the passing of Perro Aguayo. Konnan was one of the first people on the scene of the tragic incident, and he led a small tribute during the latest Lucha Underground taping in Los Angeles. Several promotions in Mexico have reportedly done a little tribute to Aguayo at their shows as well.
