WWE Hall of Famer ‘Bullet’ Bob Armstrong Dead At 80 After Bone Cancer Battle
Professional wrestling legend “Bullet” Bob armstrong – a WWE Hall of Famer – died Thursday after battling bone cancer, his family announced.
Armstong is a true legend in the sport – he started wrestling in 1960 and rose to fame for his iconic movement, the Georgia Jawbreaker.
He became a fan favorite when professional wrestling was divided into territories across the United States – and was especially loved in his home state of Georgia.
He first “retired” in 1988 – but never really hung up on biz … remaining involved in the sport for decades in one way or another.
Armstrong teamed up with Dusty Rhodes and Larry zbyszko in the early 2000s and continued to perform until 2019 !!
Many great wrestlers also viewed Armstrong as a mentor – including CM Punk, who posted a tribute on social media.
“Bullet Bob. Always so nice to me. I’d like to think he saw how delighted I was every time I spoke to him, which luckily for me often was.”
Armstrong has 4 sons who all went on to become professional wrestlers – including Scott Armstrong (who became a famous referee) and Brian, known as the WWE Hall of Famer Road dogg.
Armstrong was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2011, alongside “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan and Shawn michaels.
Our sincere thanks to
