• Old School Tag Team Veteran Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 58th birthday of Old School Tag Team Wrestling Veteran Tommy Rogers (Real name: Thomas Couch).
For most of Tommy Rogers’ professional Wrestling career, he teamed up with Bobby Fulton as “The Fantastics”.
They were a famous Tag Team during the 80s & 90s and wrestled for various territories such as World Class Championship Wrestling, Jim Crockett Promotions & Mid-South Wrestling (UWF) and many more.
Later on during the Monday Night Wars, Rogers also had a few stints as a singles wrestler in the WWF, WCW and ECW, but was mainly used as an enhancement talent.
