Bobby-EatonMemphis Wrestling News reported earlier today that wrestling legend “Beautiful” Bobby Eaton entered surgery this afternoon.  The surgery is apparently to install a pacemaker.  His spirits are said to be very high & the surgery should be routine.

Bobby Eaton has been struggling with his health for quite some time.  In March, Jim Ross mentioned Eaton in his blog as being “gravely ill.”

Bobby Eaton’s wrestling career spans from 1976 until recently, as he has only been semi-retired & competing in the Mid-South area.  Eaton is most recognized by being one-half of The Midnight Express, who were managed by Jim Cornette.  The Midnight Express won numerous Tag Team Championships throughout their tenure as a team.

Just like he did during his professional wrestling career, Bobby Eaton continues to fight.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to his friends & family during this crucial time of uncertainty.
