Me and JYD

One of the greatest stars ever in this area was Sylvester Ritter, better known as the Junkyard Dog, or JYD for short. In the early 1980's he was the most popular wrestler in not only the Mid-South territory, but possibly in all of professional wrestling. JYD went on to wrestle in the then WWF and WCW while it was still part of the NWA.

I had the chance to meet JYD at an independent card he promoted in Winnfield, LA in early 1998. Sadly, he would pass away a few weeks later in a one-car accident near his home in Forest, Mississippi.
