Action Figure Friday: Paul Jones

"Number One" Paul Jones, the Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Champion, stands in front of the Mid-Atlantic set and watches action in the ring. The image calls back to 1982 during which Jones had his long running feud with Jack Brisco over the Mid-Atlantic title. 

Action Figure Friday returns!

The figure is custom-made and a gift from Matty Montcalm at @Wrestlingwclass who surprised me with it when were both at the Tragos-Thesz Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame induction weekend in Waterloo, Iowa in July. Thanks so much, Matty!

The photo was staged by the Mid-Atlantic Gateway using a custom designed backdrop of the famous studio set used by JCP from 1977-1983. The custom backdrop was a gift from Mike Simmerman, who provided lots of great images for our old Action Figures Friday series.

Check out our entire series of action figure photos from Mike Simmerman, Matty Montcalm, Scottie Richardson, Jeff Jewett, and others. Plus some of our own!
