• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (January 1, 2008) – Old School Wrestling Jobber Passed Away
On this day in 2008, we lost Old School Wrestling Veteran Randy Barber at the age of 49 due to a heart attack.
Randy Barber did televised jobs as an enhancement talent for various promotions during the 70s and 80s, including the World Wrestling Federation (WWF), Jim Crockett Promotions (NWA), Championship Wrestling from Florida (CWF), American Wrestling Association (AWA), Mid-South Wrestling, Georgia Championship Wrestling, … and many others.
In 1989, Randy returned to the NWA’s #1 promotion, which was now owned by Ted Turner and renamed World Championship Wrestling (WCW), as “The Raider” but was still used solely as enhancement talent.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
March 10, 1958 – January 1, 2008
