My thoughts are with the entire Armstrong family tonight. Bob Armstrong was not just a legend, he was one of the nicest and most decent person I've met in the wrestling business. All my best wishes to @WWERoadDogg @WWEArmstrong and the rest of the family.

I’m deeply saddened to hear that Bob Armstrong has passed away, I got to share the ring with him quite a few times. My brother George Hines/Jackie Fulton wrestled him and Brad many times. Always great matches. My thoughts, prayers and love for the Armstrong’s.

Very sad to hear about the passing of "Bullet" Bob Armstrong. Bob was tough as nails, loved the wrestling business, and was a legend throughout the Southeast. I enjoyed working with him–and learning from him–during my time in SMW. Rest in peace, Bullet. https://t.co/hWksOc2vwm

Sad to hear of the passing of #BulletBobArmstrong…a true man’s man in this sport of thieves. When I broke my arm in #SMW in 94, Bob was one of the ONLY ones to call & check on me. I also learned the art of cutting a promo from him. Rest well Bullet! @WWEArmstrong @WWERoadDogg
