Re: RIP Tracy Smothers
I was at the Cookeville National Guard Armory years ago. It was one of those indy deals where Tracy was not even advertised on the card. They booked him too late to get him on the posters. Jim Cornette would have referred to this promotion as "All Friends Wrestling" decades before he tagged AEW with that moniker. A couple of matches go by to near total silence. Tracy walks through the door of the armory and is behind the metal chairs of the seated crowd (a.k.a. Indy Cookeville Universe). He looks around in a wide-eyed heel manner scanning the crowd. Tracy points his finger and says in a loud voice without the benefit of a microphone, "I might just whup all 60 of ya!"
