(WFXR) — Professional wrestler’Beautiful’Bobby Eaton was found dead Wednesday morning. His sister, Debbie Eaton Lewis, confirmed his death in a Facebook post Thursday morning.
Eaton was hospitalized last month for a fall with injured hips and hands. He has reportedly been treated for congestive heart failure in recent years. The cause of death has not been clarified.
Eaton is best known as a tag team specialist and has been working on some of the biggest promotions in the country.
As part of the “Midnight Express” with partners Dennis Condrey and Stan Lane, Eaton was part of a show sold out at some of America’s largest venues. The team has held multiple championships in many regions.
Eaton, known as the less-spoken man in his nearly 40-year career, often left his “manager” to Jim Cornette. He frequently appeared in our area for Jim Crockett promotion and subsequent World Championship wrestling.
Eaton was 62 years old. He is survived by three children. His wife, Donna Eaton, died of cancer in June.
His colleague from the ring took him to Twitter to mourn his loss. Their comments are posted below:
