    Paul Perschmann, aka Playboy Buddy Rose, was found dead today by his wife at his home in Portland, OR. No cause of death is known at this time, though he told people that he had been having blood sugar issues with his diabetes of late. Buddy worked for both WWF and AWA and was one of the great stars of Don Owen's Portland Wrestling. He helped groom a lot of wrestlers both in the ring (including Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannetty in an early tag feud with partner Doug Somers) and later at his wrestling school, which he operated until recently with "Colonel DeBeers" Ed Wiskoski. Both Buddy and Ed were honored by the Cauliflower Alley Club in 2004. He holds the honor of being in the first-ever WrestleMania match on March 31st, 1985, as the masked Executioner, losing to Tito Santana. More info on his life and career is available at his website, which is located here.

*ahem*...that's the "slim, trim, 217 pound Buddy Rose"



He'll be remembered mostly for his comedy spots, but the guy could definitely work a match in his day.

RIP Playboy. Used to watch him in his Portland Wrestling days. He was the big man on campus.

One of the many good things about ESPNCL showing old AWA wrestling lately has been getting to see the Rose/Somers vs. Midnight Rockers matches.

Let us remember the creator of Blow Away.

It has been great to finally see some of those matches that I missed out by growing up out in the sticks and not having ESPN back in the day. R.I.P. Buddy.

And by quirk of faith, today was the day they broadcast the Bloodbath at the Showboat between the Midnight Rockers and Rose/Somers. Nice to see Greg Gagne have to attempt to put the spotlight on himself at the conclusion of the match.

It's been mentioned several times that with London & Kendrick and The Mexicools in the SD! tag division the TLC days could be perfectly recreated.
