This is not something you want to come into but we will always remember the good times. I had the pleasure of briefly meeting him in 2017 and the honor of taking a picture on his phone and Savio Vega's phone with him, Savio and Nikolai Volkoff. It's so awesome how so many guys know each other from working different promotions together either independent or non-WWF at various times and get to be a small part of them reminiscing and enjoying each others company is a great feeling.

I am shocked he was only 58. He's been around so long and had this really old school veteran look to him. He's one of the guys you hear so many good things about. Anyone who met him at an indy show and posts about it, you normally hear about him making the time to talk with them during the show or before or after. He was supposed to do a signing with Tommy Rich and Little Guido just a few weeks ago but he wasn't able to make it obviously. It would have been great for the fans of course but I'm sure the guys would have loved seeing each other. Having met all of them, I'm sure they got along really well during their time together. All three are absolutely "do anything for anybody" or "give the shirt off your back" type of guys. All three deserved bigger positions in wrestling IMO but all three would probably agree they were happy doing what they did.
I thought Tracy in WWF would have been a huge success in 1996 but it wasn't meant to be. He wrestled in all three major promotions of the time and it was always great seeing him no matter the promotion.
