CAC Executive Director Morgan Dollar spoke with the legendary “Cowboy” Bob Ellis recently. Ellis is the inventor of the “bulldog” move and is remembered as the first Cowboy wrestler. Ellis said he plans to attend the 48th Cauliflower Alley Club reunion next April in Las Vegas.
Cowboy Ellis said, “At my age (83) it’s hard to plan this far ahead. But with health permitting, I would love to come to the reunion and catch up with the boys & girls.”
Morgan also contacted Cowboy Bob Kelly about Ellis making plans to attend the reunion, and Kelly was also excited,
“Cowboy Ellis is the reason I got into wrestling. When I was a kid, I used to watch him wrestle and thought, you know I would love to do what he’s doing…and the rest is history. I got my name from him, the bulldog move from him, even the “Cowboy” name. I can’t wait till April. I will thoroughly enjoy seeing Ellis again.”
Ellis had a great career, holding numerous titles with partners such as Johnny Valentine and Eddie Graham. To read the full article, go to: http://www.caulifloweralleyclub.org/2012/07/27/cowboy-bob-ellis-makes-plans-for-2013/.
