“Once you met him, you realized he was a greater human being than the image you had as a professional wrestler,” fellow wrestler and friend Tommy Laughlin said.
“There will never be another…’ always gets said, but this is absolutely true; ‘Beautiful’ Bobby Eaton was literally one of a kind. Rest In Peace, Bobby. The wrestling Business did not deserve you, but I’m glad we got you,” said wrestler Dax Harwood.
Eaton had a fantastic professional wrestling career that ended with his induction into the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2019. He wrestled for nearly four decades.
