Rest in Peace: Lance Russell Passes Away

Our heartfelt condolences are extended to all the family, friends, and fans of Lance Russell who passed away Tuesday morning. He was 91 years old. His family made the announcement on Lance's twitter page.

Lance was of course the legendary voice of Memphis Wrestling for so many years, but also spent a few years in WCW after Ted Turner purchased Jim Crockett Promotions. During that time Lance worked with Bob Caudle on "NWA Pro Wrestling" and also hosted the "NWA Main Event" with Paul E. Dangerously.

Lance was loved by all, and is sorely missed. Rest in Peace.
