Through the past years there have been many different evaluations of Tommy Rich and based on this information there have been many misinformed people. I can honestly say no one knows the real truth of the man Tommy “Wildfire” Rich as I do. The “truths” of Tommy Rich you’re thinking how do I know? That is simple, for the past 30 years while everyone has been passing judgement I have sat idle. Now it is time for the real truth to be known. I am his friend, personal confidant, mother of his children, the Grandmother of his five grandchildren, I am his wife! TeriLynn Kateyed57@t-mail.com
Brandon Welch wrote: The last ever match between Tommy Rich and Buzz Sawyer was a closed steel cage match (with manager Paul Ellering in a little cage 30ft above the ring) called “The Last Battle of Atlanta on October 23, 1983 in the Omni. Rich won, it was a bloodbath and concluded their 18month fued. I saw Rich wrestle before and after and this match (and the fued in general) really took a lot out of him. He would go on to fued with Ted DiBiase over the Georgia National title, and have great matches (even under a mask in the amusing Mr.R story line) but he was never quite as fast or explosive as he had been when battling Sawyer. They murdered each other every night and it was unlike any wrestling conflict I have ever seen. Sawyer is one of the best wrestlers I saw, he could do a great match with a huge man like Crusher Jerry Blackwell or a ring scientist like Arn Anderson. He had the best powerslam ever, better than the Steiners. To bad he ODed at the age of 32 and is completely forgotten by many modern fans. He would have done great in a promotion like ECW because he could look fantastic in any kind of match. It would have been great to see him get a popular as Mick Foley.
