Pro wrestling legend, Bobby Fulton started his pro wrestling journey back in 1977. The then-youngster was 16 years old when the aforementioned journey began and he worked his way to some of the more integral promotions the wrestling world has seen over the years. All that wear and tear accumulated for the legend and he recently had to go under the knife.
Fulton has experienced some health problems as of late – specifically – a rough battle with throat cancer. There is some good news as PW Insider reports that Fulton underwent a successful shoulder replacement procedure and is said to be doing well.
His time wrestling in Stu Hart’s Stampede Wrestling, All Japan Pro, Smokey Mountain Wrestling, World Class Championship Wrestling, Jim Crockett Promotions and the NWA are examples of the above.
It was in 1988 that Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer Newsletter named Fulton’s feud with Tommy Rogers vs. Bobby Eaton and Stan Lane as the “feud of the year,” which is no small feat.
Fulton officially retired in 2020, he having wrestled his last match for his very own WCPBTW wrestling promotion in 2018. The match was against Nick “Kid” Curry at first, but then the two teamed up to face Gary Wolfe and Robby Starr. He and Curry won the match, and at the end of the bout, Fulton removed his boots in the ring, which in pro wrestling has deep significance.
He has made appearances in the past…signings, indie events and the such, and you might be able to catch him back out there soon enough. We here at Ringside News, wish him well and are elated to hear he is on the mend.
