Johnny Walker, aka Mr Wrestling II, passed away. A big star in Georgia, Mid-Atlantic, and the Mid-South regions, here he is in an iconic photo with his biggest fan.

I was 12 when I made love for the first time, in Tropea, with a Roman girl who was 17 years old.

fun fact: Jimmy Carter's mom (who LOVED GCW and II in particular) wanted to invite II to her son's inauguration and have him sit on the VIP dais. however, doing so would have required him to divulge his real name/identity to the Secret Service, and that's just not done.

some of his Mid-South run where he tagged with Magnum T.A. against the Condrey/Eaton Midnight Express is on Youtube, and I suggest you check it out.

Johnny Walker's wife, Olivia, who died several years ago, used to make all the robes everyone wore.

love that his Wikipedia article is like "he had a wife. She made robes, and then died. Unrelated, but in 1953, boy howdy did he do a big time crime."

On the day he died I looked at Wikipedia... it said he had been convicted as part of a gang surprise sex of a 15-year-old back in 1953. It didn't appear in the article until after he died, that I can see, but there was a link: https://www.newspapers.com/clip/192...ny-walker-surprise sex/

Holy poo poo. That's shocking. His ROH title match with Paul London was great. A very important but forgotten part of the early 2000s US indie scene, especially in the North East, for ROH, Jersey All Pro, USA Pro, ECWA, ICW.

He was going to make his return to wrestling this year too. Even did a run in to save someone on the Homicide Anniversary GCW show and looked in great shape.

Highly recommend checking out Jon Bois' video The Bob Emergency. Armstrong's longevity features in it, and now the sports world is one step closer to running out of Bobs.
