Shaun Simpson (born July 22, 1966) is a retired professional wrestler from South Africa.


Shaun Simpson is the son of professional wrestler Alec Simpson, who wrestled as Sammy Cohen. Shaun made his debut in 1987 for World Class Championship Wrestling. He formed a tag team with his brother, Steve Simpson, subsequently winning the WCWA World Tag Team titles. Their biggest feud was against John Tatum and Jack Victory.[1]

In World Class, the Simpsons were allied (in storylines) with the Von Erich family, and were fan favorites in the territory.

He left WCCW with his brother in late 1989 to wrestle in South Africa but Steve Simpson returned in 1991 to wrestle in Global Wrestling Federation in Texas.[1]
