sputnik monroe passes away

sputnik monroe passed away this morning at 8:00 am after a long illness. He was the first of the old time carnival wrestlers that I ever talked to, and had some of the best stories. He was a giant in terms of the psychology of pro wrestling, and a wonderful supporter of the early civil rights movement. I'm a richer person for having known him. keep his wife joanne and his family in your prayers.

Rest in peace.

DAMN!!! Drew i am in Florida right now and Pops had told me to look Sputnik up while I was down here. REST IN PEACE SPUTNIK!!! Lord knows you earned it!



He had a full life!
