Kirchner passes
By Craig Tello
October 19, 2006


Former WWE Superstar Thomas Spear, professionally known as Corporal Kirchner, passed away of natural causes Sunday in his home in White Marsh, Md. He is survived by his two sons, daughter and step-daughter, as well as two grandchildren.

A Vietnam veteran, Kirchner is known for defending his country in the ring as well as out. He is not only revered as one of sports-entertainmentís toughest competitors, but also one of its greatest patriots.

In the early 1980s, Kirchner proudly carried the colors of the American flag in the vein of former WWE Champion and Hall of Famer Sgt. Slaughter. Perhaps one of Kirchnerís most celebrated victories took place at WrestleMania 2 where he defeated WWE Hall of Famer Nikolai Volkoff in a Flag Match. See Kirchner in action in the Flag Match from WrestleMania 2.

I remember when I was about 30ft away from where Owen Hart fell at Kemper Arena. Never heard an arena so silent before. Kemper was so silent you could have heard a pin drop in that place.

Not that anyone remembered this guy anyway, but apparently he's not dead after all. Good news for him, I guess.
