Yep... that's what I said too!
That's right, Friday night December 30th, I will step into the ring as a "wrestler" for the first time since 1999. I will be in a six-man tag-team fracas with my son "D.J." and cousin "Marvelous" Marcel Pringle. We will be in Brewton, Alabama at The National Guard Armory, belltime is at 7pm.

The last time I "wrestled" was on May 10, 1999 on MONDAY NIGHT RAW against The Big Show. This particular edition of RAW scored the highest rating in the history of the program up to that time. I am certainly not saying that I had anything to do with the rating, it is just a note of trivia. The rating was an 8.1. That was beat a few months later on September 27, 1999 when Mick Foley did the "This is your life Rock," and scored a 8.4 rating. Those ratings have never been matched since. To put things in perspective, this past Monday night had a 3.5 rating.

If you live in the Brewton area, I look forward to seeing you there. If I live... I will be in Pensacola, Florida on Saturday night at the American Legion Hall.

Courtesy of YOUTUBE, here is my match with The Big Show from 1999.

Be Blessed.

16 years ago tonight...

On this very night in 1991, at The Joe Louis Arena in Detroit, Michigan, I was at The Undertaker's side during The Survivor Series when he beat Hulk Hogan for The World Wrestling Federation Championship. To say that it was one of the many highlights of my career would be an understatement. Courtesy of YOUTUBE, here is one of the promos that lead up to the event.

Be Blessed.

Friday & Saturday Fight Nights... Another WCCW Death

An old friend of mine, "Angel of Death" Dave Sheldon, passed away this past weekend at his home in Bedford, TX. No other details are available. Sheldon worked for many North American territories during the 1980s and early 1990s including Stampede Wrestling, World Class Championship Wrestling, and Bill Watts's Universal Wrestling Federation as the bodyguard of The Freebirds. Sheldon was also part of the California-based Powerteam USA group, which included Sting, "Ultimate Warrior" Jim Hellwig and Mark Miller. he first started wrestling with Stampede Wrestling with Owen Hart, Brian Pillman, and Chris Benoit. Dave was always a gentleman and a class act. May he rest in the peaceful arms of Our Saving Lord.
The Pringle's are running wild both Friday and Saturday nights this week. Friday night we will be at The National Guard Armory in Brewton, Alabama. FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER myself, my son "D.J.," and cousin "Marvelous" Marcel Pringle will participate in a 6-man tag-team match! You read it right! I will be wrestling for the first time since 1999. It could very well be my last time too! LOL
Then on Saturday evening, I will be in D.J.'s corner at The American Legion Post in Pensacola, Florida. These will be two great independent events, and if you live in the area I am certain you will enjoy them both.
Be Blessed.

A game last night? Hmmmm.... dang if I remember one. LOL
Be that as it may, the Moody house was rocking last night as a number of close friends gathered to see our beloved CRIMSON TIDE fall to Auburn University for the sixth straight year.
Oh well... there's always next year.
On this day four years ago in 2003 I had my gastric bypass surgery. When I was rolled into the operating room I weighed 525 pounds. Simply an amazing miracle. Seriously, like many anniversaries and remembrances that I bring up here on my BLOG, my surgery seems like it has been 20 years ago. The photo below was when I was at my heaviest. Without that surgery, there is absolutely no doubt that my name would be on the long list of our departed brothers and sisters from the wrestling industry. I have been truly blessed.

I have gained back a few pounds, but things are good. The photo above is one of the most recent pictures of me, red faced from screaming during a promo while managing my son "D.J." in a recent local independent event.
Be Blessed.

ALABAMIAN BY BIRTH... Crimson Tide By Choice

Today is the day that CRIMSON TIDE fans wait for every year! No matter what we may have accomplished (or not accomplished) during the past 11 games, it all boils down to this one game for us. I've learned from past experience to keep my mouth shut on predicting the finish on this one... so that is exactly what I will do. Kickoff will be at 7pm (CT) tonight on ESPN. We shall see what we shall see!
Be Blessed.

BAMA SHAMED... but there's always next week.

That Alabama couldn't hold an early 7-0 lead over Louisiana-Monroe Saturday, turning the ball over four times in a 21-14 loss to the Warhawks at Bryant-Denny Stadium. The loss drops Alabama's record to 6-5 (4-3 SEC).
All will be forgiven next week when Alabama travel's to Jordan-Hare Stadium in Auburn on Saturday, Nov. 24, to face the Tigers (6-4). Kickoff is scheduled for 7 p.m. (CT) and will be televised on ESPN.

We can only pray...
Be Blessed.

The Board of Directors of the GULF COAST WRESTLERS REUNION, of which I am a proud member, will have it's first board meeting this weekend in preparation for our 17th annual get together. This exclusive event is held the first full weekend of every March and is open ONLY to those who are retired or currently active in our industry.

Three years ago we decided to endeavor to get new blood in our organization, namely allowing those on the independent scene to become members. We began THE HORIZON AWARD, which is voted on by those members who participate in indy professional wrestling only. The first year Ethan Emmerson (Aeon Flexx) was voted as the first Horizon Award winner, last year Mark Thompson (John Saxon) was the winner and was presented by ring legend Danny Hodge. Who will be this year's nominee? You can only find out by being there!

Our 2008 Reunion will be held on March 7 - 8th, and it's time to get your applications in!
If you have Adobe Acrobat you may download and print your copy right here. Just click on this link:

REMEMBER The Gulf Coast Wrestler's Reunion is ONLY open to those retired or active in the professional wrestling industry. Wrestling fans ARE NOT allowed in this unique gathering, nor are wrestling website reporters or wrestling historians. You may be called upon to prove your history within the business, and EVERYONE will be screened at the door.

I am appearing at most area indy events these days, so please feel free to approach me with any questions, and I will try to have applications on hand for any of you interested.

Be Blessed.

Requiem For A Lady

WWE Hall of Famer and former Women's champion Lillian Ellison "The Fabulous Moolah" passed away in her sleep last night at her home in Columbia, SC. She was 84 years old. Moolah made her professional wrestling debut in 1949 and joined the then WWF in 1983 after Vince McMahon secured her services. Moolah came into the company already as the Women's Champion, bringing her title from the NWA and then lost it to Wendi Richter in 1984 in the main event of 'TheBrawl To End It All' which was aired live on MTV. Moolah went on to win the WWF Women's title a total of four times. In 1995 she was inducted into theWWE Hall Of Fame and appeared from time to time on WWE television along with Mae Young. Her last appearance on WWE TV was at SummerSlam during a backstage segment with McMahon and William Regal.
World Wrestling Entertainment released an official statement which can be located by clicking on this link:

Miss Lillian was always a class act and a dear friend of mine. Somehow I always thought that she would always be here, because she has literally always been here. On second thought, she will indeed always be with us, as she has left a permanent impression on our industry that will never be erased. My deepest sympathies and prayers go out to her family, and longtime friends Johnnie Mae Young and Diamond Lil.

Be Blessed.


The long awaited SABIN BOWL will kickoff this afternoon at 4pm (CT) on CBS. The media attention that this game has been receiving is astonishing, even more than the upcoming annual AUBURN rivalry on November 24th. I will keep my comments to myself on this one, and we shall see what we shall see! I will get to see the kickoff and the first quarter or so on television before I hit Interstate-10 for Pensacola, then I must depend on the radio for my weekly BAMA fix.
Yes indeed, I will be making my fist appearance for ULTIMATE WRESTLING in Pensacola, Florida tonight alongside my son "D.J." UW has been making it's mark on the independent scene in the Florida panhandle, and I am anxiously anticipating a fun filled evening especially if BAMA beats LSU!
Be Blessed.
