I have to admit, I don't know him. 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.
I like Aries as a performer, but between this and the whole "Boston bombing was a false flag search for the truth" stuff he's apparently been espousing, he's coming across like a real douchebag as a person.
