The original 'nature boy' of wrestling, Buddy Rogers, died this day in 1992, age 71.  (25 years ago)
As stated on Wiki:
"He was set to wrestle yet another "Nature Boy", this time Buddy Landel, in a comeback match for the Tri-State Wrestling Alliance in early 1992, but the promotion went out of business and the match never occurred. Later in the year, Rogers.....suffered three strokes....was put on life support and died a short time afterward on June 26, 1992."

In 1992
Buddy Rogers was 70-71 yrs old.  Buddy Landel was 31.

What kind of fucking wrestling promotion was THAT supposed to be?

Sounds like your average scummy low level wrestling promoter. Hundreds of them, probably per State.

You are allowed to be a little more creative, such as 'she lost her head' or 'put her mind at ease' 50 years ago.... etc.  I mean it isn't every day we get to remember a decapitation.

I remember where I was when I heard Jimmy Stewart died: wondering why my grandfather was so upset at the death of an actor I'd never heard of!


Of course, Jimmy is great: Rear Window, Rope, Vertigo, Liberty Valance, Mr Smith, Wonderful Life, Harvey, and so on - too many great films to name them all.

 

On that note...

 

Not a famous name, actually, but it's actually the 10th anniversary of my grandfather's death. He swore by the bottle (or the can/shot/entire pint glass full of whisky, all of them, he wasn't fussy) and outlived each of his temperance movement bound friends. He of the "drinking whisky because terminally ill with lung/liver cancer" anecdote I've mentioned before. A thorough Celtic man who used to phone us up at 1am, drunk, to discuss Stephen King and Jesuits... often in the same sentence. I always remember his solid Deathlist-esque advice: "It never ceases to amaze me who you outlive. There's people dying today who've never died before in all their lives!" Too true.

He was also know as the hardest person to interveiw in Hollywood. Know for answering questions with don´t know, Nope or Yep. Or short conversation-stopper replies like: Don´t read book. Dońt go to movies. Only take on work if it is going to be filmed in a place I want to visit.
