Bobby Eaton was over the most as a tag team wrestler it seems, more noteably teaming with Dennis Conderey and Stan Lane as the Midnight Express for damn near a decade, with Arn Anderson as part of the Dangerous Alliance and with William Regal as the Blue Bloods. He went out on his own as a singles wrestler several times, winning the Television Title from Arn Anderson at SuperBrawl I and later losing it to Stunning Steve Austin. This match took place on Nitro between Eaton and Rey Mysterio Jr and is an entertaining match where, as usual, Beautiful Bobby makes his opponent look like a million bucks. It’s a shame he never got any higher than the Television Title. At the least a run with the U.S. Championship would have been nice.
Bobby Eaton is reportedly in the hospital and will be entering a WWE sponsored rehab facility soon. I’m not sure of any specifics and don’t need to know. I’ve had the honor of seeing Eaton wrestle in person, including a TV Title defense against “Stunning” Steve Austin and have also had the chance to meet him. He is one of the most gracious pro wrestlers I’ve had the pleasure speaking with and an all around nice guy. I wish him the best in recovery. An absolute legend.
