In spite of having another heart attack and stroke not long ago, Ron is doing pretty good. His spirits are up and he is regularly working his physical rehab with the help of his wife. Although we've been talking for over a year, we just started working on his book about six weeks ago. A publisher of wrestling books has already reached out to us with strong interest. He was a great, underrated worker who could always be counted on for a solid match. I first saw him when he was working as a heel in L.A., and he frustrated us fans of the baby faces, because we grudgingly had to admit that he was really good in the ring, and could wrestle as well as brawl.
Ron worked in several territories in North America and in Puerto Rico, and has some great stories to share about his career, being a Vietnam vet, and what it was like to stir up heat in the days of kayfabe, to the point where his life was sometimes put at risk.
