For my money, the only man who came close to Gordon Solie as a professional wrestling announcer.

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.

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.

He was a regional guy who never got on cable, or he'd be right up there with Solie. Tremendous talent.

I agree with Chill, i mean ok, so Jarrett has the title and Jarrett/Nash might not be the best program in the world, but nobody quits watching WWE when Triple H does the same thing, and frankly I'd rather put up Jarrett and watch the rest of TNA's roster ...
