WWE.com has posted an article remembering Playboy Buddy Rose, who passed away this week at the age of 56 years old. The article takes a look at Rose’s entire career, from his early days in Minneapolis to his WWF run in the early 1990′s.
– WWE Hall of Famer Howard Finkel has posted a new blog on his WWE Universe page, where he remembers one of his favorite performers in WWE history
, the late “Playboy” Buddy Rose.
“In the ring, he could move with the best of them. Deceivingly quick and cat like, Rose could go toe to toe with the best of them. His first meeting against Bob Backlund in Madison Square Garden even had my jaw dropping in amazement. This man gave the then WWE Champion a run for his money, in addition to the great Pedro Morales, and others as well.”
The Fink added, “He knew what his role was, and he always seemed to press the right buttons to make himself a most unique character that stood out from the rest of the pack.”
