Jim Ross has posted a new blog over at JRsBarBQ.com remembering the late Brad Armstrong. Below are some highlights:
"Being the son of a wrestling star, especially a territorial, wrestling star, Brad knew the complexities of 'getting over' in a territory and what every promoter sought…reliability, consistency, in ring talent, and being low maintenance. Brad was all those things and more.
Behind the scenes, Brad Armstrong was one of the funniest, most personable men I've ever met in the business. He could light up any locker room and seemingly got a long with everyone. If someone had an issue with Brad Armstrong, they really needed to take a long look into a mirror.
One of the greatest things someone in our business can say of any wrestler is that said wrestler could have a good match with anyone, no matter who. Brad Armstrong certainly fits on a rather short list of wrestlers that could literally have a good match with anyone.
Rest in peace to one of the most underrated, all time greats ever in the business and condolences to his wonderful family and to Brad's many friends."
Next week's edition of Smackdown, which will be a SuperSmackown broadcast on Tuesday night, will be headlined by Randy Orton vs Alberto Del Rio in a Falls Count Anywhere match:
