George South is someone who I saw on TV every week on NWA wrestling, but I never really thought too much about him back then. I referred to him as “a jobber” or “a bum”. Back then I didn’t understand the business like I do now and I didn’t have the respect for what they do and how good they are. South has seen something of a career revival with him popping up on various internet shows and being referred to as a legend in the business. He is finally getting his due, after more than 25 years in the business!
He is a trainer at the Highspots.com wrestling school and he started a weekly video show with the owner of Highspots, Michael Bochicchio. It’s just George and Bochicchio talking candidly about the old days, the current state of wrestling and whatever else comes up. It’s a really enjoyable show and I look forward to seeing more from the great George South!
