We are sad to report that Lance Russell, the voice of Memphis wrestling, passed away this morning at the age of 91. Russell’s son broke the news to fans on Twitter.
Russell suffered a fall and broke his hip on Friday, the same day as the passing of his daughter after a bout with cancer.
Hey All, wanted to share the sad news that dad passed away this morning. You all have been a blessing in this difficult time. Thank You!!!
