Adam Pearce posted the following announcement today:
It is with great humility and honor that I am able to announce that I have been chosen by the Moody Family to accept the Lou Thesz Award on behalf of my friend William Moody (@wweURNiverse) at the Cauliflower Alley Club convention this year.
Percy was chosen for this great honor months ago, and it is one that he considered one of the biggest of his professional life. I too, consider it as such, and now an even bigger privilege as I accept the award on his behalf and in his honor.
I am proud to share the stage with his longtime friend Ethan Emmerson to honor Percy’s career and legacy, one that I am ever so grateful to have been a small part of. My profound thanks go out to the Moody Family for giving me this incredible and undeserved privilege.
