Old School Wrestling Legend Passes Away

NWA

While everyone paid tribute to Bruno Sammartino, we have lost yet another legend the very same day, on April 18, 2018: Old School NWA Legend “Number One” Paul Jones.

Jones wrestled for several NWA territories during the 60s, 70s & early 80s, but most of you Old Schoolers out there will probably remember him as the manager of his very own stable “Paul Jones’ Army”.

Among the members of “Paul Jones’ Army” were big names like Ivan Koloff, Abdullah The Butcher, Superstar Billy Graham, Rick Rude, The Warlord, Baron Von Raschke, The Barbarian, …

For most of the 80s, Paul Jones & his army feuded with popular babyface ‘The Boogie Woogie Man’ Jimmy Valiant.

The feud ended when Turner bought ‘Jim Crockett Promotions’ and both Jones & Valiant left the promotion.

Below is the list of wrestlers that Jones managed:

– Abdullah the Butcher

– The Assassins

– The Barbarian

– Manny Fernandez

– Dory Funk Jr.

– Superstar Billy Graham

– Teijho Khan

– Ivan Koloff

– Kamala

– The Masked Superstar

– The Mighty Wilbur

– Dick Murdoch

– Vladimir Petrov

– Baron von Raschke

– Jake “The Snake” Roberts

– Rick Rude

– Russian Assassin #1

– Russian Assassin #2

– Ken Shamrock

– The Warlord

– Shaska Whatley

– The Zambuie Express (Elijah Akeem and Kareem Muhammed)

REST IN PEACE PAUL JONES!
