Many outlets are reporting that Tommy Gilbert, father of Eddie and Doug Gilbert, 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.

Our deepest condolences to the Gilbert family as well as to the friends and fans of Tommy.
