Bobby Fulton Discusses His Decision To Retire From Wrestling

Bobby Fulton of the Fantastics spoke to Wrestling Epicenter's Interactive Wrestling Radio ahead of his recent retirement. You can see the full interview at this link, and the highlights below:

Deciding to call it a career and retire:
"I was actually going to retire last year in November. The reason I decided it was time to jump off is I've still got pretty good health and I'd like to keep it that way. I'm 57 years old. When I get in that ring, I want to give it my all. The thing of it is, 40 years is good. It was a dream of mine as a kid. I spoke to an elementary school today. I told those kids if they have a dream and a desire and a passion than they can accomplish those dreams. I mean that. I want to tell every child that. I had a chance to live a dream. Not only that, sir, but I got a chance to go further than I ever thought that I could."

Being paired with Tommy Rogers for the "Fantastics" team:
"Well, Tommy and I met in Memphis, TN for Jerry Jarrett's company. He was a singles wrestler. I was a singles wrestler too. We were both Junior Heavyweights. The Rock and Roll Express were out and they were looking for a tag team in the old Mid South territory, Bill Watts' old territory. Superstar Bill Dundee chose me, Cowboy Bill Watts chose Tommy. They put us together as a 90 day replacement team and the rest is history!"


The rumor that Tommy Rogers may have killed himself:
"Tommy Rogers passed away. It wasn't no suicide. That had been brought up especially when he first passed. He choked in his sleep on some food he had eaten. I considered him a dear friend but not only that, he was a brother in Christ. We both had accepted Christ as our Lord and Savior."
