My earliest wrestling memories are from Memphis, and he would call the action every Saturday morning. It's terrible more people didn't know him. Promote this thread!

But the simple fact that he was a staple in Memphis and all the classic stuff that happened there makes him important to the history. Part of Lawler/Kaufman, etc. A lot of wrestlers pay tribute to him. BUt maybe most importantly, 67 years of marriage. Kudos.

He was a regional guy who never got on cable, or he'd be right up there with Solie. Tremendous talent.
How many young guys get hurt while wrestling Bob Holly. Don't now if this was Bob's fault or not but there's a bit of a pattern of OVW guys getting injured while in the ring with Holly.
