Gorgeous George Dead At 85

Retired professional wrestler Gorgeous George Grant has passed away in York, SC. (Looks like his real name was Dan Moody Sheffield.

I had no idea the old fellow was still around, and that close, too. York is just down the road. Charlotte is a good town for the older generation of professional wrestlers; Ric Flair makes his home here, and famous names like Tim "Mr. Wrestling" Woods, Wahoo McDaniel and Andre the Giant all lived in the area.
