Moondog Spot, real name Larry Booker, collapsed in the ring during tonight's event at the Mid South Coliseum in Memphis and was taken from the building by ambulance and transported to Methodist Central Hospital. 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.
Let's put this in the plainest terms possible: Darryl Strawberry has no business instructing anybody about anything. He has never done a thing in his life to warrant a position of guidance. Not on the field. Not off the field.-- David Vescey, si.com
A sad day. Hopefully they bury Spot's favorite bone with him.
Why Pro Wrestling proves the INS cannot keep terrorists out of the United States: If a felon like Nathan Jones is allowed into the United States with no special skills (unless being totally inept in the ring counts, but I think there are enough totally inept people in the US to keep that skill from being unique or special), then how the hell can they justify keeping anyone else out?
Actually, Eddy Guerrero was flirting with death when he joined Art Barr and became pro U.S. back in the heyday of the AAA promotion. Saying that Mexican wrestling fans take wrestling VERY seriously is not a stretch by any means.
