Longtime Indy promoter and Memphis wrestling star Bert Prentice has passed away at the age of 62. Prentice worked for USWA back in the early 90s and in more recent years he ran the USA Wrestling promotion in Tennessee. On Monday Prentice took to Facebook and announced that his sister Marilyn would be taking over the promotion’s day to day operations.
Jeremy Borash and Dixie Carter would issue statements.
Bert was a wonderful friend and a pure joy to work with. Always made me laugh. The years we worked together hosting Xplosion during the early days of TNA are great memories. My condolences to his family on this loss. https://t.co/g9v9JELdEK

I’ve not been able to get Bob Ryder off my mind today, and now to hear about Bert. Bert was a staple at the #Asylum in our early days. Rest easy Bert, and thanks for all you did for @IMPACTWRESTLING. Sending love and prayers to your family. #rip 💔🙏 https://t.co/fvhcgeKjAb
