Gentle ‘Killer’ Kowalski leaves a legacy of love
By Joe Fitzgerald
Wednesday, September 3, 2008 - Updated 2h ago

Terrific tales are sure to be told this afternoon and evening when the friends of Killer Kowalski gather for his wake at the Weir Funeral Home in Malden.

Kowalski, who was 81 when his heart gave out Saturday morning, was a wrestling legend in this town, routinely packing old Boston Garden with frantic fans who came to see him vanquish foes with a weapon he called the Claw Hold, which he performed on an opponent’s abdomen.

The nickname was established one night in Montreal when Walter Kowalski, who was 6-foot-7, climbed to the top of the ropes and jumped upon Yukon Eric, a crowd favorite whose many years in the ring had left him with a cauliflowered ear.
