I don't remember anything about him other than being Buddy Roses silent partner.

Was part of the last great breath of the AWA during his run with The Rockers in the AWA and with Rose as his partner. Unfortunate to think that Rose, Somers and Sherri are all gone from the opposite side of the ring from Michaels and Jannetty.

Had a brief run in WCW as a virtual jobber too. But those Rockers vs Rose and Somersault matches were some of my favorite tag matches ever.

Yeah, those 86/87 tag matches were absolute gold. Loved those matches.

He also became tag champs with Soldat Ustinov when Boris Zhukov left for the WWF

Get your hands on 'Rose & Somers vs The Rockers' from Las Vegas. One of the greatest tag-team matches ever in my opinion.
