Legendary Wrestling Announcer Lance Russell Passes Away

It’s a sad day in wrestling. Legendary wrestling announcer Lance Russell has passed away at the age of 91.

Lance was best known as the voice of Memphis wrestling.

I grew up watching and listening to Lance Russell and in my opinion he was the best in the business. I believe he should be in the WWE Hall of Fame. I had the pleasure to meet him once and got the photo above.

All of us here at Wrestling News Blog send our thoughts and prayers out to Lance’s  family and friends.

Below are reactions on his death from longtime announce partner Dave Brown, Jerry “The King” Lawler and others:
