It doesn't seem possible, but it was one year ago this Sunday that Pope John Paul II died. Is time flying by, or is it just me?
Welcome to my official BLOG at PercyPringle.Com, where I will keep you posted on my current activities, future plans, ramblings, rants, and just plain stuff. As always, I encourage emails with your questions, comments, and suggestions, at: PercyPringle3@PercyPringle.Com
I will be in the Boston, MA area this Saturday night March 25th. The MWF is set for the Braintree Moose Lodge, at 175 Howard St. in Braintree, MA. You can get more info by clicking here : PP3 Boston March 20th The photo above was taken during my last trip there, I am proud to lead lead my "Trifecta" - (left to right) Jimmy Jact Ca$h, MWF Heavyweight Champion "Sudden Impact" Dylan Kage & "Hoochie Playa" Danny Jaxx - into action once again. We will see you at ringside.
Our GULF SOUTH WRESTLING group returns to Southwest Mobile County this Friday night March 24th, at 7:30 pm. The event was rescheduled from last Friday, due to the building making a double booking mistake.
My new "shoot interview" that I recently filmed with RF VIDEO is now available. You can get more info on it at: Percy's RF Video Shoot As we leave you this morning I ask that you continue to remember John "Eartquake" Tenta (above) in your prayers. John has been battling cancer for a very long time, and continues a valiant fight. What a fantastic human being, performer, and friend John is. I also ask that you keep my brother Harry "Bubba" on your prayer list also, as he is still having health issues.
I would appreciate my friend Michael Norris for sending me a photo of the original Percy Pringle, as seen above. I knew there was one, but I have never seen his picture before. I met and I am familiar with the second Percy Pringle, but details about #1 are few.
I am proud to be a part of the new WWE DVD titled 'The World's Greatest Wrestling Managers'. Besides myself, wrestling managers who will be profiled on this DVD are Captain Lou Albano, "Classy" Freddie Blassie, Jim Cornette, Miss Elizabeth, "The Mouth of the South" Jimmy Hart, Bobby "The Brain" Heenan, Paul Heyman Sensational Sherri, "Golden Boy" Arnold Skaaland, Sunny, The Grand Wizard and many more! There are also thirteen special features in addition to the usual documentary-style DVD. Interesting.
Have a great week, my friends!
Tomorrow's Friday! Have a great day!
My friend, wrestling Legend Les Thatcher, gave a mini-seminar at our GULF SOUTH WRESTLING Training Center, this past Thursday night. That evening may very well be the "tipping point" for what we are doing along The Gulf of Mexico. We all, including myself, walked away with a new attitude. I would like to thank Les for his contributions, and we look forward to seeing him again very soon.
Our 15th Annual Gulf Coast Wrestlers Reunion was a tremendous success as we rubbed elbows with my heroes that now are my friends. In the photo above, I am standing proudly next a engine cover dedicated to the late Lee Fields. Lee was the promoter of the Gulf Coast style of wrestling that I was blessed to "cut my teeth" on. Lee began our Reunion 15 years ago.
On Saturday evening, it was a pleasure to take our Webmaster "Plowboy" Kurt Nielsen on a tour of Burbon Street. Just like Las Vegas, what happens on Burbon Street stays on Burbon Street. Sunday I had the opportunity to show Kurt some of the sights downtown, notwithstanding some of the horrible damage done by Hurricane Katrina. In the photo above, "Plowboy" caught me in front of a private mausoleum in one of the cities old cemeteries. I look right at home, don't I?
Kurt and I pose at the late "Plowboy" Stan Frazier's gravesite in Biloxi, Mississippi. Of course the original Plowboy was "Uncle Elmer" years ago in The WWF. This was the second year in a row that Kurt and myself paid our respects at "Tiny's" resting place. The storm damage along the Mississippi Gulf Coast is still breath taking. Speaking of WWF/WWE, and hurricanes. The company returns to my hometown tomorrow night for a taping of SMACKDOWN. The event was originally set for early September, but was postponed due to Hurricane Katrina. I'm looking forward to visiting with my extended WWE Family, as anything can, and usually happens.
Have a great week, my friends!
