Greetings Mr Brisco,

I add my own two cents welcoming you and stating how wonderful it is to have you as a part of this board. I would like your "take" on Johnny Weaver and thank you in advance for your response.

Another poster had asked for your take on Paul Jones and it triggered similiar thoughts for me of Johnny. It seemed that he had no desire to travel out of the Mid-Atlantic other than a rare short tour of Florida and a match or three here and there in other territories. I always thought that was the reason he never gained national "fame".

I would appreciate your take on him as a wrestler and why he never had more prominance outside the Mid-Atlantic. One memory, watching Johnny go down to Florida to challenge you for the World title but he was under a hood as a "Mr Wrestling" and the "storyline" was he had come down to take you on in disguise because you were "ducking" him in the M-A.

Thanks again,

Flair Fan

I wrestled Johnny several times in the Carolinas. We sold out every time we wrestled.

I have a very high opinion of Johnny. He is a good friend of mine.

He made good money in the Carolinas and was always on top. He had no desire to leave there. He would have been a headliner anywhere he wrestled.

Johnny Weaver wore the hood as Mr. Wrestling to take on Dory Funk Jr, who was "ducking" JW in the MACW area.

I wonder when Jack wrestled Johnny if it was a straight face vs face contest? Or did Jack do the subtle heel? Would love to have seen the matches!
