Johnny Weaver Gateway Interview

Johnny's interview with the Mid-Atlantic Gateway is now online on that website. You can go directly there by CLICKING HERE.

Sorry we haven't had many recent posts here on the Weaver blog in November, we've been working hard on getting the Gateway interview ready. The good news is, however, we have also been working hard scanning a great deal of the material in Johnny's personal scrapbook, which we will be presenting here on the blog, so look for it soon.

Also, don't miss the Gateway feature on "Johnny Weaver Weekend" in Rocky Mount VA.

The main event featured the classic tag team rivalry of the 1960s:
Becker & Weaver vs. Hawk & Hanson.
