Doug Gilbert passes away

Nov 5, 2013 - by Steve Gerweck

Doug Lindzy, better known to wrestling fans as Doug Gilbert or the Professional, passed away at the age of 76 on Sunday. He was inducted into the Georgia Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2011.

Lindzy took the name Gilbert when he began teaming with Johnny Gilbert, and it stuck throughout his career. His career began in the 1950s, and his first big break came as a partner to Dick Steinborn in the AWA, as a tag team known as Mr. High (Steinborn) and Mr. Low (Gilbert).

Gilbert also wrestled in Florida, Amarillo, Montreal, Los Angeles, Kansas City, Indianapolis, and the WWWF, winning titles almost everywhere he went, but his most lasting impression seems to have been his run as the Professional in Georgia.
