“Bullet” Bob Armstrong passed away and the pro wrestling world all mourned the loss of a legend. The WWE Hall Of Famer influenced so many as he blazed a trail and taught the business to others.
Chris Jericho remembered Bullet Bob fondly in an Instagram post. Jericho said that Armstrong was one of the few people to call him when he broke his arm in Smoky Mountain Wrestling. That was not lost on Le Champion at all.
He also credited Armstrong for showing him so much that helped him become the entertainer he is today.
When I broke my arm in #SmokyMountainWrestling in 1994, #BulletBobArmstrong was one of the few to call and check on me. He also taught me the subtleties you need to cut a great promo. He was a true man’s man in this sport of Gypsies, tramps & thieves….and Now the Bullet and his son (my former traveling partner & one of the funniest guys I’ve ever met) #BradArmstrong, are finally hanging out again and training arms in God’s Gym! #RIPBullet #RIPBrad
Bullet Bob Armstrong is gone, but he will never be forgotten. WWE also released a touching video tribute for the Hall Of Famer and patriarch of the Armstrong family. You can check that out below.
