Jim Cornette took to social media this morning to clarify reports surrounding “Beautiful” Bobby Eaton’s health.
Eaton had reportedly suffered a heart attack recently, but his former manager explained that’s not the case in a tweet on Thursday which included more details.

Under the management of Jim Cornette, Eaton originally teamed with Dennis Condrey and, later on, with Stan Lane. He has also worked with a number of other tag team partners, including Koko B. Ware, Steve Keirn, and “Lord” Steven Regal.
