On April 3, 2023, the media and across the wrestling community mourned the passing of Bushwhacker Butch. Butch, real name Bob Miller, was hospitalized in the ICU after arriving in Los Angeles for WrestleMania 39. While we celebrated the 39 years of WWE's grandest stage of them all, it was also a sad day for Miller's family, friends and fans.
Butch and his tag team partner, Luke, started wrestling in 1964. It was later in 1989 that they debuted with the WWF. They had their feuds with "The Bolsheviks" and "The Fabulous Rougeau Brothers."
The Bushwhackers, who were also known as "The Sheepherders" wrestled nearly 40 years.
The Bushwhackers were inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame, Class of 2015.
