Mike Johnson is reporting that legendary booker George Scott passed away yesterday at the age of 85. Scott was most known for his work booking for Mid-Atlantic Wrestling, WWE in the mid-1980s, WCW in the late-1980s and World Class Championship Wrestling. Scott also wrestled during his long tenure in the wrestling business, wrestling for Stampede Wrestling, the Carolinas and what was the pre-cursor to World Class in the 1950s & 1960s. Scott would retire from the wrestling business after his run as booker of WCW in 1989. Up until his passing, it was noted that Scott was ill for some time.
On behalf of the staff at Wrestleview.com, we send our condolences to the family & friends of Scott during this tough time.
