Tracy Smothers made his pro wrestling debut in 1982. Although never achieving true main event status, Smothers has had success in many wrestling organizations, such as WCW, ECW, WWF, USWA and others. Smothers is a wrestling lifer. He's a smart and personable veteran.
I met Smothers at Heroes and Legends Fan Fest. Smothers had some great stories and he willingly told them. He seemed to be having as much fun as we were. Heroes and Legends Fan Fest is a great place to meet and talk to wrestling stars from legends to independent stars of today. The next Heroes and Legends event will be Saturday, April 21 in Fort Wayne, IN. So far, those announced include Jim Ross, Tito Santana, Bob Orton, James Ellsworth, Marty Jannetty, One Man Gang, Jessicka Havock, "Hardcore" Heather Owens and Sami Callahan, with several more still to be named. It is always a day full of wrestling nostalgia, fun and action.
Smothers will be appearing with Jessie Belle Smothers (his wrestling daughter) at Berwyn Championship Wrestling on Saturday, January 27. This is a good opportunity to meet this pair together.
