This thread will be 'pinned' at the top of the forum and be used to remember those that entertained us.

Everyone is different and some will like this board or that board, or this news source vs that news source. In the end, whether we are oldtime fans or fans of today, we the fans, and the wrestlers, managers, announcers, etc are all interlinked as part of the same family. And when we lose one, it is a loss as a family.


Your remembrances should be posted in a respectful, 'eulogy' style post.

The first person I'd like to list would be Jim Zordani, one of the founders of our site, a booking sheets genius, and devoted Cubs fan.

Ken Timbs, one of the nicest guys I've met on the fake wrestling interweb, I also had the pleasure to talk to a bunch in real-life. OSW was a great place with Kenny, and not very good without him.

Ken Timbs was the first and always the one that hit closest to home as he remains the nicest "worker" I've ever interacted with on these boards.  Hard to believe it's been so many years since he passed and so many years since OSW has even existed.

Trying to make a list of other message board posters no longer with us but my memory isn't that great for this kind of thing.

With Jimmy Z. I want to add Ox Baker.

Ox was one of Jimmy's favorites and when they met twice they really hit it off and we had a lot of fun seeing them taking photos together and all.

Grew up watching the AWA and still miss it to this day.


If this thread is more meant to honor those that have passed that had an online presence then I would mention the name,



Jim Mandl-wrestling historian and longtime poster at KM and elsewhere.

Brian Pillman. I never liked Flyin' Brian, until his series with Jushin Liger. They did spots at a house show in the Meadowlands that were so insane we could see Stan Hansen watching through the curtain.

From the Hollywood Blonds period to the end of his life, I will say he was as entertaining as Ric Flair was from 85-89. He was at the top of everybody's game.

Moose Cholak- I saw him live many time at the Hammond Civic Center. I lived in the same neighborhood as him, so I saw him pretty often. He was always nice and approachable. He was always kayfabe

These are the wrestling deaths that shook me

Owen Hart
Hawk
Eddie Guerrero
Wahoo
Bamm Bamm Gordy
Ernie Ladd
Gordon Solie

As far as posters no longer with us Jim, Randy Mikell(loadedboot originally from MS) and Mark from Wa were some of the nicest folks I have run across in my 20 years on the old Intrawebz. I learned to be guarded online but those three were folks I corresponded with in some fashion so I got to know them better than I do most. They were good folks and the World is worse off for their loss.

The Chicago contingent will likely have more to say but George Gunderson (GeorgeG) on the old KM board is worth recalling. He was a CAC reunion visitor in the early 2000's but I didn't connect with him. He passed shortly after getting a life membership, sadly.

RIP to Eddie Einhorn, the man who created TVS and through it promoted and syndicated the IWA in the mid 1970s. In the mid 1980s he used his connections in the sports TV world to get the AWA on ESPN. TVS in its day aired college basketball, college football bowl games and all star games, the WFL, auto racing, golf, tennis, pro wrestling, and other events. Einhorn later ran CBS Sports and then became part owner of the White Sox. He also tried, but failed to get a network TV contract for the USFL's ill fated fall season in 1986. He was a pro wrestling promoter and fan who attended the CAC on at least one occasion and donated the Jack Pfefer papers and files to Notre Dame's library for preservation.
