Gary Garbutt is a pretty funny name so it stands to reason that it is a totally made up name. He obviously didn’t wrestle under a mask because Cedric Alexander did that work for him, but who was Gary “The Goat” Barbutt?

The Jackson Sun reports that Gary Garbutt is actually Kosha Irby. He is the former president of AAF’s Memphis Express football team. He also previously worked for WWE years ago as regional director of live events.

This was a great little role for him to play and he pulled it off quite well. He certainly had the confused role down to a tea.

There is unfortunately no word yet on whether he actually got paid the $5,000 he was promised by Shane McMahon.

I love pro wrestling and hate BS. These two things drive me. Years of experience in writing, journalism, and digging exclusive insider info for Ringside News. Worked in finance before realizing pro wrestling journalism made much less sense. Pro beachballs at pro wrestling shows, pro dives if someone catches, anti bullies, olives, and pineapples on pizza.
