Les Thornton dead at 84

The well-traveled Les Thornton, former NWA World junior heavyweight champion, has died. He was 84 years old. His wife, Terry, posted the news Facebook: "It is with great sadness we share that Les Thornton peacefully took his leave on February 1, 2019 at 11:15 am, with his devoted wife, Terry at his side." ...

Born in Salford, England, Thornton put in 34 years into the pro wrestling business.

"I broke in the business in 1957 and I didn't come to the States until 1970," he told this writer in 2004. Previous to that, he played professional rugby for 12 years. A few other colleagues went from rugby to wrestling, including Pete Viller, who worked as Pat Curry, and Tommy "Time Bomb" Murthy...

This really REALLY sucks.  I never met TerryWWWF nor really had much to do with him but goddamn he was a great part of this board.
You fuckers better stop dying on me.  I can’t take losing the good guys on this board anymore.

RIP TerryWWWF.  I agree with you Star, TerryWWWF was a cool dude around here. Unfortunately, I know of at least one good guy on this board who won't be around anymore soon.

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.
Fuck yeah!

He wasn't a person known to this board but to those in the independent community in the tri-state area, a lot of folks know this man. Lyle Williams was my friend who was a photographer for CZW among other promotions. He passed away last night after having Kidney & Renal cell cancer. Kevin Owens posted a nice memory of Lyle last night and a picture of them together backstage for CZW or ROH on Twitter.

Wrestling lost a huge fan today. I hadn’t seen Lyle Williams in many years but I still remember his kindness and enthusiasm for this industry.

He took a lot of pride in capturing moments from every show he could make it to and sharing them with everyone.

He will be missed.

Per Dave Meltzer:
The burial of Lyle Williams, the Philadelphia area pro wrestling photographer, will be on Saturday at the Pitman Church on Pitman Road in Sewell, NJ at 9 a.m.

I didn't know if he posted regularly at the old OSW forum, but when I first joined (around 2004) I remember reading a few posts from John Tenta a.k.a. Earthquake, and he would be giving us updates on his bladder cancer which he later died from. Not sure if he was actually a member or someone was quoting him from elsewhere....but RIP Earthquake.
