Just heard the news about the passing of Bert Prentice and am truly saddened by it.
I used to always refer to Bert as a “Godfather” when I would speak to him. Burt was always good to me. There’s a whole lot of folks who owe an awful lot to Bert. To say he was a legend is an understatement. Take note. When someone like this passes away in the wrestling industry; they will never be replaced. A piece of the business passed away with Burt today. These are “legacy” individuals. The impact that he had can never be overstated enough. He was a true icon of the industry. Rest well my friend. Until we meet again one day.
