The famous director of "Night of the Living Dead" has passed away.
He did have a connection to wrestling in that he filmed a "documentary" on Bruno Sammartino in 1974 called "Strongman". Like Bruno, Mr. Romero also called Pittsburgh his home.
RIP George Romero

His first paid film making gigs were producing brief filmed segments for Mr. Rogers!

Mr. Romero was also involved with the films Creepshow and Creepshow 2, which both had a wrestling connection. The Jordy Verrill segment in the first movie has him watching a match between Bob Backlund and one of the Samoans. In the second film, in the story about the Raft, one of the songs the car radio plays ended up being Lex Luger's theme in WCW.

Knightriders is essentially a pro wrestling kind of thing and even has Stephen King, asa loudmouth spectator commenting that the jousts are like pro wrestling.
