Bobby Eaton


Scott,

I’ve message a few times regarding the dangerous alliance and midnight express, but I wanted to get to the point and ask what you thought of Bobby Eaton.

I don’t know why I’m such a fan of him. Perhaps it’s remembering his quality work with the dangerous alliance, or that he just had a manner about him that he seemed like a decent guy…

I don’t know. I just hold him in High regard, and it’s only after hearing stories in later years about how nice he is that I lament he isn’t brought up very often, when o feel he could make for a good addition to the rotating we’re documentary interviews.

I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

​Yeah, Bobby Eaton has long been cited as the nicest guy in the business by everyone who worked with him at the time, and he’s a really underrated guy as far as moving heavyweights into a more aerial style.  Jim Cornette of course has a million hilarious stories about him in shoot interviews, like all the two-bit gyms they’d run where Bobby would get so high on the legdrop that he’d hit his head on the light standards and stuff like that.  I’ve heard his health was REALLY bad as of late, but he seems like he’d be a neat guy to do one of those Table for 3 deals if they could find Dennis Condrey and Stan Lane and sit them all down.​
