Today is Johnny Weaver's birthday. He would have been 73 years old today. We send our best wishes to our friend Wendi, knowing she is missing her father today. We miss him, too.

|Ric McCord, Wendi Weaver, and Rich Landrum|
Wendi Weaver appeared in Rocky Mount VA at the Night of Legends II: A Tribute to Johnny Weaver to present one of his special ring jackets that she had donated to be raffled off to benefit the chairatable activities of "We Care of Franklin County", an organization that works with the disabled and the disadvantaged. The raffle continues through Dec. 6th and the drawing will be held at the ACW show in Rocky Mount on that night. (Click here for more information.)
The night was a tribute to her father, the great Johnny Weaver. Fans enjoyed video highlights from Johnny's career shown up on a big screen, as well as a special video greeting from one of Weaver's very good friends in the business, Blackjack Mulligan. Also in attendance to pay tribute to Weaver was Sandy Scott, Rich Landrum, and Ric McCord. Jim Nelson wrestled Eclipso in the main event. Photos and a story from the show can be seen by clicking here.
