Efforts to revive him were unsuccessful and he passed away shortly after suffering the collapse. His family was with him at the show and accompanied him to the hospital. Spot had been a legendary figure in the Tennessee area for years and had also wrestled as Larry Latham. -1wrestling.com RIP, Moondog Spot Promote this thread!

He also really helped out a friend while he was coming up through the ranks. This saddens me. I hope you're at peace, Spot.

Y!: # 4 Posted on 30.11.03 1857.15 Reposted on: 30.11.10 1858.10 Sad to hear about Spot. I know of him, but never saw many of his matches. I wonder if many wrestlers harbour a desire to die doing what they love doing best. Too many deaths in the wrestling world have come from substance abuse. (edited by mikebuk on 1.12.03 0222)

Two weeks ago, he wrote a great column on The Moondogs. It's a great read, especially now: http://www.moviepoopshoot.com/wrestling/ 62.html --Monte N

Too many deaths in the wrestling world have come from substance abuse. (edited by mikebuk on 1.12.03 0222) It's hearing stories like this (or the one in Ted DiBiase's book) that really make you wonder what the hell a guy like Teddy Hart is thinking when he says that if he dies in the ring so be it.
