Jim Ross has published a new blog entry on JrsBarBq.com. In his latest entry he talks about the passing of Buck Robley. Here is an excerpt from the blog.

“Sorry to hear of the passing of former wrestler and booker Buck Robley this week. Buck was a unique character who served for a time as Cowboy Bill Watts booker in Mid South Wrestling before he was replaced by Ernie Ladd. Buck had a creative mind but had to be vetted by the big Cowboy on many of the wild west type storylines that Buck wanted to do.

Buck was a great crowd psychologist who loved to create ‘heat’ and had plenty, both in and out of the ring. One of his best creations was a rivalry that he had with Ken Mantell where Buck put a ‘bounty’ on Mantell. I was the referee for a match between Mantell and the great Terry Funk in the downtown Municipal Auditorium in New Orleans to where if Ken won he would get his long awaited bout vs “The Colonel.” It was one of the best matches that I ever refereed inasmuch as the two talents had an amazing, passionate, believable match that I still remember to this day.

The booking meetings that Cowboy and Buck had, that I sat in on more often than not, were classics. Combustible, compelling ‘discussions’ about ideas for the territory. I learned a great deal about our business from those weekly meetings.

I even designed and made the yellow T Shirt that Buck wore in the ring adorned with “Nobody Calls me Yellow” on it.

RIP Colonel Buck Robley.”

Also in his latest blog entry, Ross talks about Bobby Eaton being hospitalized. You can read it’s blog to its entirely here.
