1980s star Tommy Rogers passes away on Monday

Tommy Rogers, who is most known for his Fantastics tag-team with Bobby Fulton in the 1980s in the NWA, passed away Monday morning at the age of 54 according to Fulton via the following post on Fulton’s Facebook page:

“I was wanting to wait until all of the family has been notified. My wrestling tag team partner Tommy Rogers passed away this morning in Hawaii. I am totally devastated by this loss. Words can’t even describe it. Tommy blessed me with an opportunity to be a part of one of the great tag teams of professional wrestling. He was one of the best athletes in the profession. My prayers are for Sheila and the rest of the Couch family. Not only was he a partner he was like a brother we travelled many miles and many different places. I know in fact with his belief in Jesus which he shared with me many times recently and I know he has heaven as his home, because the Bible teaches us to be absent of the body is to be present with The Lord.”

Rogers, along with Fulton in the Fantastics, most notably won the NWA US Tag Titles from The Midnight Express on the very first Clash of the Champions in March 1988. Rogers last appeared for ECW back in 1997 before retiring from wrestling. There is no official cause of death for Rogers’ passing as of this writing.

On behalf of the staff at Wrestleview.com, we send out our condolences to the family & friends of Rogers during this tough time.
