Re: RIP Paul Christy
I did a show with Paul in Pleasureville, Ky. I was working at WSTL radio in Eminence, ky and a guy named Cliff Lilly came by the station to buy ads and hired me to announce. The only workers I remember on the card, other than Lily who worked a Zebra Kid gimmick, were Paul, Angelo Poffo, who he worked on the card and Dale Mann. Was standing in a hallway and Angelo out of the blue struck up a conversation with me. We spoke a few minutes and he had to excuse himself to get dressed for his match. Ironically, MANY years later I worked for Angelo and Randy. Paul was defending his title and I remember when they handed me the belt thinking how cheap it looked and felt. Later I followed them back to Shelbyville, Ky where they could hit the interstate and they pulled into a gas station. They were in seperate cars and they got out laughing and hugging and talking about how much fun they had had. I remember thinking, hmmm somethings not quite right here. Little did I know. RIP, Mr. Christy.
