• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (May 16, 2017) – Old School Wrestling Veteran Passed Away
On this day in 2017, we lost Old School Wrestling Veteran “Pretty Boy” Doug Somers (Real name: Douglas Somerson) at the age of 65.
Most Old School Fans remember Somers from his AWA days, where he formed a Tag Team with “Playboy” Buddy Rose.
Their feud with the Midnight Rockers Marty Jannetty & Shawn Michaels is legendary and they had some of the best matches in the long and illustrious history of Verne Gagne’s AWA territory.
In 1991, he had a brief stint in WCW as “Doug Summers”, where he lost to Van Hammer at the annual Halloween Havoc PPV.
Doug jumped ship the following year in 1992, when he worked for the World Wrestling Federation as an enhancement talent, putting over WWF Superstars like Bret Hart, Tatanka, Jim Duggan, El Matador, Owen Hart & The Big Bossman.
† REST IN PEACE DOUG SOMERS!
