He redefined professional wrestling from the
late 50's through the 90s. Gordon made man a believer in wrestling
during his era, giving credibility where others failed... A talented
man, he played set up to the great stars of the day including
Jack Brisco & Dusty Rhodes..
Solie also worked in radio, doing news at
WTSP (later WLCY) in the 1950's, and at WYOU in the 60's and
Gordon passed away in 2000 from cancer. His
passing leaves a big void in the world of wrestling announcers. "Before
him there were none, after him there shall be no more".
Solie & Don Curtis
