More Florida Memories...

A young Barry Horowitz, who in 1985 was working as "Jack Hart." Barry joined The Pringle Dynasty, and was involved in a major angle where he lost in the neighborhood of 150 matches before he won his first one, which happened to be in a Battle Royal for the Florida Heavyweight Title. He pinned Mike Graham for his first win and the championship. Great stuff.
Barry as "Jack Hart" squares off against Hector Guerrero. Hector is Eddie's older brother, and was a top name in Florida for many years. Hector has recently been involved in some TNA programs.
Barry lifts Hector into the air for a big drop to the canvas.
Hector dives off the top giving Barry another record loss.
The fans were really into Barry's win/loss record. This capture shows a fan hold up a scorecard after Barry's loss to Hector.
Pringle Dynasty member's The Missing Link and The Assassin in tag action against Dale Veasey. Yes indeed, the referee is Bill "Fonzie" Alphonso of ECW fame.
Yours truly introducing the original Assassin (Jody Hamilton) to Gordon Solie as the newest member of the Pringle Dynasty.
Jody was the owner of Deep South Wrestling, a recent WWE developmental territory for a number of years.
It was a true pleasure to manage The Assassin, one of the legendary masked men in our industry.
During the same time my brothers, The Fabulous Freebirds were in the Florida territory.
Here's the "Birds" in a verbal confrontation with Mike Graham. From right to left, Buddy Roberts, the late Terry Gordy, Michael "P.S." Hayes, Gordon Solie, and Mike Graham. This shot was from the beginning of a very controversial angle with the Freebirds and Mike Graham that is still talked about today. It was shortly after Mike's father Eddie passed away, and the Freebirds took advantage of Eddie's untimely demise in the interview, saying that Mike was a loser just like his Dad. A bloody beatdown of Mike followed.

Have a great week!
Be Blessed.
