Paul Jones passes away

April 19, 2018

WWE is saddened to learn that Paul Jones has passed away at the age of 76.

A fixture of the Mid-Atlantic territory throughout the 1960s and ’70s, Jones found success as both a competitor and a manager. He won the NWA Mid-Atlantic Heavyweight Title on three occasions, and formed championship tag teams with the likes of Ricky Steamboat, Wahoo McDaniel and Baron von Raschke.

When his ring career ended, Jones became a villainous manager, and formed the Paul Jones’ Army, which included the likes of The Powers of Pain, Abdullah the Butcher and Jake “The Snake” Roberts.
