• Ric Flair, Edge & More React To The Passing Of Bobby Eaton

We reported earlier that Old School WCW/NWA Legend ‘Beautiful’ Bobby Eaton passed away last night at the age of 62.

Most of you Old Schoolers will remember him from his Tag Team days as one half of the legendary Midnight Express, managed by Jim Cornette.

It’s about time that WWE inducts them into their Hall of Fame, which they treat as an overall pro-wrestling Hall of Fame and is not just exclusively for former WWF/WWE Superstars.

The professional wrestling world is currently reacting to the passing of one of the most underrated workers of all time.
