Tribute To A Legend

Four years ago we lost Mid-Atlantic legend Johnny Weaver.Johnny began his career with Jim Crockett Promotions in 1962.During a newspaper interview that was published on Sept.20,1986,Johnny told the reporter he had retired from the ring a little more than a year before.He continued to work behind the scenes at JCP until the end which was 1988.Johnny did come out of retirement for a few matches in late 1987 prior to Starrcade.

Johnny Weaver will always be my favorite "good guy" wrestler.I sure do miss him.
