I had just really been starting to appreciate his place in wrestling history with all the WCCW retrospective stuff of late, and would have loved to have read the book he was supposedly thinking of writing. Best wishes to those he leaves behind.
Sad to see one of the great wrestling minds leave us. Was actually hoping for him to be a Hall of Fame inductee and steal the show like he stole the World Class DVD. Glad he was able to contribute to that DVD before his passing.
I guess it makes some sense to hire someone who's already familiar with the weird, wacky world of pro wrestling and won't be scared off by it -- like, say, Amy Weber was. Still, is that a role that really needs to be filled at all?
