I am unbelievably sad to report that my very good friend Billy Robinson passed away today. I hadn't heard from him in days so I contacted his apartment complex to check in on him. When I called back for a progress report the apartment manager put the police on the phone, it seems he passed peacefully in his sleep. He was a lion of a man, bigger than life in so many ways, my wife and I named our youngest son, Lliam in his honor. You will be sorely missed, my friend. Thank you so much for living the life you did.


Such a legend.

Wow a true legend is lost. He was an amazing wrestler and was probably the biggest reason why Catch as Catch Can Wrestling is still alive and well today. The man who taught the Sakuraba, Tamura, Barnett and many many more. Pro Wrestling and MMA owe him a great debt.

As much as I have heard/read about the man I have never seen him wrestle.
