Wrestling legend “Beautiful” Bobby Eaton of The Midnight Express passed away on Wednesday at the age of 62. Eaton’s sister Debbie Eaton Lewis revealed the news on Facebook. Eaton was hospitalized in July after suffering a bad fall where he reportedly broke multiple fingers and hurt his hip.
Eaton worked for promotions such as Mid-America Wrestling, Continental Wrestling Association, Mid-South Wrestling, WCCW, Jim Crockett Promotions, WCW and Smoky Mountain Wrestling. Eaton was a true legend of the business and will truly be missed.
