Four years ago we lost Johnny Weaver. Today we pay tribute to him by featuring one among thousands of matches he wrestled for Jim Crockett Promotions during a career that lasted twenty-plus years.

Johnny Weaver wrestled on the first card my Dad took me to when I was five years old. I will never forget Johnny Weaver.
