I met this guy last night and he was going on and on about his great career and turning down offers from the WWF and being an international star and all the normal bullshit you hear from indy workers.  But I checked him out and came across a 20 minute video of clips from his career and I'll be damned if he wasn't actually a fantastic worker.  The video included clips against Marc "Rollerball" Rocca and other top jr. heavyweights of the day and he was really good.  So I discovered that he was trained by Antonino Rocca and broke in with the WWWF in 1968 as Bobby White Feather and then travelled the world as a top jr. heavyweight, winning both the NWA World Jr. Heavyweight title and the Canadian version of the title.  At the end of his career he teamed with his "brother" Al Bold Eagle (actually the first student he trained) and they won the tag titles for Joint Promotions in England.  He then retired in 1991 to become a full-time trainer at Gleason's Gym with Johnny Rodz and helped train Rocco Rock and Jason Knight among others. 

So Claw, let me know what you can dig up on this guy when you have a chance.  He seemed to have a nice 23 year career mainly in Canada, England, South America, and Japan, but I'd be curious to see who he worked with in his brief time in the WWWF and what else you might be able to find.  There was a different Bobby Bold Eagle who worked for Dick the Bruiser's WWA so that's not him.

I'm not Claw, but i can guarantee you this guy never held the NWA Jr. Heavyweight title. At least not the same one held by Danny Hodge, Ken Mantell, etc.

He is also not the original Bobby Bold Eagle. Bob Boyer used that name for years during the 70s in the WWA.

Well this is the one who held several versions of the Junior Heavyweight title.  He mentioned it and he's introduced as the champ in some of the clips.

This is his Obsessed With Wrestling profile:

Just google "Bobby Bold Eagle" England. You'll find many more listings.

Young David is Davey Boy Smith, I believe.

I could swear this is the same Bobby Bold Eagle who came up and worked for (I believe) The Bearman in Ontario in the early '70's.  Looks like the same guy and if he held a Canadian title in this area in the early '70's - it probably was.
