The most underrated of all time RIP champion
August 23, 2013
I used to watch Johnny Weaver and George Becker wrestle as a tag team at Starland Arena in Roanoke, Virginia, when I was a young kid in the 60's. I remember them and the Scott Brothers would always remind me sort of like my Western Heroes at that time, about good over evil. I'm in my upper 50's now, and I will always remember him as one of my favorites.

I enjoyed going to the Norfolk Arena with my mom when I was a little girl watching the great Johnny Weaver wrestle.
I will treasure the memories those days.
RIP, Mr. Johnny Weaver

Sorry this entry is late. I stumbled across this site as researching Johnny Weaver. Thanks are for the memories of Sat. afternoons watching wrestling with my family. I lost my dad at an early age and treasure those memories. He was a fan.

Wendi, You know its seems like just yesterday that Johnny was at the house enjoying himself. I was always proud that he could come to my house and stay a few days and really enjoy himself,We'd either be watching the race or watching a ball game.He and I always had our little talks. Johhny's picture hangs in my office so I know the sleeperman is here always. Robert and Lisa Reece Cowpens, Sc.

Wendi, I know I am late sending this condolence note. I just found out tonight at work (Roanoke College/Campus Safety Officer. I am so sorry about the passing of your Dad and Mom. They both were favorites of mine thru the years. I have a book that I received a few years back that your Mom sent me Banner Days and autographed. I will treasure it for life. I also saw your Dad wrestle many times in person in the past. I remember seeing a picture of you in one of the Wrestling magazines years ago picking a guitar and riding horses with your Mom. You were so beautiful but what can you expect from having a Dad and Mom like Johnny and Penny. I know this has been a really painful experience for you. Having lost my own Father to cancer 4 years ago and having two daughters myself and probably being close to your age this was shattering news to me. Your Mom and Dad are no longer suffering nor in pain so I know that eases some of your pain. I know you think of them every day and that is normal. I have been down that road with my the loss of my own Dad. I regret reaching out to you so late but I had to as they both were heroes of mine in my formative years. Please accept my belated expression of sympathy. Sincerely, Randy W. Mitchell of Roanoke,Va.

Some of my earliest memories of the old "Mid Atlantic Championship Wrestling" are of Johnny Weaver and Art Nelson on TV on Saturday afternoon, or at least hoping they would be. I would be trying to convince my mother that going to the live matches at Roanoke, Va.'s Starland Arena was a good idea, but I was never convincing enough.
Thank you Johnny for all the great memories. I have more than enough to last my entire lifetime. Rest in peace, old friend.

I have just learned of Johnny's passing. My what great memeories I had as a child in Charleston, S.C. going to County Hall on Friday nights to see Johnny Weaver and George Becker take on Rip Hawk and Swede Hanson. I can remember talking my Mom and Dad into taking us to the Hall early so that we could park behind the building to wait on Johnny and George. At the time, they also had the great Sailor Art Thomas with them. We got there and waited about an hour. A new station wagon drove up and out came Johnny, George, and Art with big smiles on their faces! They were glad to see us and they even offered us some of their Kentucky Fried Chicken! They spoke with us, showed us their muscles, and you bet, Johnny even demonstrated the sleeper hold for us. After some hugs, autographs and well wishes, we were off to the balcony to see the match. What a true Gentleman! Back in the 1970s, wrestling was a great family outing. It was clean and decent. Thanks to the men that made it that way for us as kids. We will miss you Johnny. God bless you and yours. Thanks for the wonderful old days!
