Eddie Gilbert and Dick Murdoch shake hands during a ring side exchange with J.R.
The late Eddie Gilbert learned from everyone he came in contact with and was a sponge for wrestling knowledge. Eddie and Dick Murdoch hooked up in the old UWF and Murdoch fed off of Gilbert’s youthful enthusiasm. Gilbert had a great mind for the business but personal issues sidetracked what could have been a long and productive career in the ring and behind the scenes. These two were absolute, excellent performers and were two of the most natural antagonists I was ever around. It would be really interesting if both were alive today to see what role each would be playing in the land of sports entertainment.
