Farewell Freebird Buddy Roberts 1945-2012

Pro wrestling great and Fabulous Freebird Buddy Roberts has passed away at the age of 67. He was a vital member of the heel team the Fabulous Freebirds when he provided the technical proficiency between Michael Hayes’ entertaining antics and Terry Gordy’s huge physicality. The most memorable thing about his run in the Freebirds was his hair loss to either the Von Erichs or Iceman King Parsons and he ended up wearing a boxing headgear to protect his wig in World Class Championship Wrestling in the 1980’s. The feud between the Von Erichs and Fabulous Freebirds was legendary. He is now up there with Terry Gordy and will be missed by his family, friends, and the pro wrestling community worldwide.
