He's my cousin. He's still around but his health isn't so good because of all the beatings and ring antics. He does still attend some of the local events, so you might check them. Sorry, but I can't give out personal info.

You can see an old video of him and Whitey Caldwell at this link http://www.cloudscreek.blogspot.com . Just scroll down, you'll probably have to go back a couple of older posts. I think the video is about 2 posts back, and then on the third page there are a series of recent pics that Ron is in.

Ron has a MySpace page at http://www.myspace.com/505778785
His phone is unlisted for obvious reasons. Some people took all that way too seriously, and did things like stab him in the back.

I wish someone would do one of these shoot interview dvds with Ron. I grew up hearing stories about his wrestling days from my dad who always went to shows. Just today, I started watching some footage of his time as a manager in Smoky Mountain Wrestling and it's some of the most entertaining stuff I've seen in years.

I'd love to hear his take on his career and the people he worked with.

He was great!

Yes he did. Somewhere around here I have an old 8x10 of the brothers that is signed by (I think) Don. My aunt had some pictures from those old shows and gave them all to me about 15 years ago.

As a matter of fact, Don was recently advertised for a show in Kingsport. Obviously not wrestling, but being outside the ring.

Found the picture, and it's actually signed by Ron. There's also a smaller picture that she had taken herself and brought back later that is signed by Ron. Also found pics of the Fullers, Jimmy Golden, Bob Armstrong, Les Thatcher, and a young Kevin Sullivan, but that one's not signed.

I would have loved to have seen those shows.

My father (crazy man that he was) was bet 50 bucks that he wouldn't get into a ring and knock out the referee...Of course, he took his buddy up on the bet and got the thrown out. He is, to this day, banned from any Civic Auditorium event in Kingsport. This happened in 61. Ron Wright was one of the wrestlers that knew my Dad and got him out of the ring before the other wrestlers got to him! I know this was put in the paper, but cant find any info on it... I knew Ron and Don from me being a bartender at Applebee's for years but didn't know they were involved in this...If anyone has anyway of me finding out about this story, please post...Also, whoever said Ron is their cousin, could you ask him about this and tell him Pam Light from Applebee's was asking?? I would appreciate any help as I think it would be fun to find this article!
