RIP "Playboy" Buddy Rose

Paul Perschmann aka Buddy Rose passed away yesterday at the age of 56.

Some of my fondest early childhood memories involved watching Buddy Rose's shenanigans on both Portland wrestling and Vancouver All Star wrestling.

I can't think about Buddy Rose without smiling.

When the Portland promotion was building towards a Buddy Rose VS Roddy Piper looser leave town match(Rose would eventually win the match) I vividly remember a fan holding up a sign that said bye bye Buddy we'll hate to see you go.

Buddy/Paul I hate to see you go

Thanks for the memories.
