Tommy Gilbert, the patriarch of the Gilbert wrestling family and a star for a number of wrestling territories, passed away this morning.
Gilbert, who was 75 years old, was a headliner in the Memphis territory for many years and worked a number of other Southern wrestling territories including Continental, Florida and Puerto Rico’s WWC.
Gilbert held a number of titles including the Florida Heavyweight championship and the WWC Caribbean Heavyweight championship as well as countless Tag Team championships.
Gilbert’s sons Eddie and Doug followed him into the business, following their father to become legitimate stars in the Memphis area as well and beyond, working for The NWA, Global and other promotions.
MindofCarnage would like to express our deepest condolences to the Gilbert family as well as Tommy’s friends and fans.
