Longtime WWE ringside production crew member Frank Bullock passed away on Saturday night following a long battle with cancer. Bullock was well-liked by just about everyone in the company and was on the crew for numerous years. If you sat in the first few rows at WWE live events over the past 10+ years, you may have seen him. He was one of the main guys in charge at ringside.
Jim Ross wrote the following about Bullock in his latest blog:
“Condolences go out to a long standing member of the WWE family as I’ve read of the passing of Pittsburgh audio tech Frank Bullock who spent about as much time at ringside as anyone that I know. Frank was invaluable to the announce teams that passed through WWE as he always made sure that we could hear ourselves and those that we needed to hear via our headsets. Thanks for being a friend Frank and for your years of service to the business. Condolences to your family, friends and co-workers who will miss you. #RIPFrankBullock”
Several WWE stars paid tribute to Bullock on Twitter, including John Cena, William Regal and JBL.
