Former USWA manager Scott Bowden has passed away at the age of 48.
The cause of death has yet to be determined. Kevin Lawler announced the news on Facebook.
Bowden worked in USWA as a referee and manager in the 90s. Bowden was the second for Eddie and Doug Gilbert, Jerry Lawler, Bam Bam Bigelow, The Dream Machine, Tommy Rich and more during his time as a manager. He used a football helmet as a weapon and claimed to be the nephew of Florida State Seminoles Coach Bobby Bowden. During his time as a manager, Bowden took beatings from Jacqueline, Steve Austin, The Rock, and more.
Bowden left wrestling to work as a writer and actor, writing a column called Kentucky Fried Rasslin' for Kevin Smith's website. The column turned into a blog and podcast. He had interested in being a WWE writer at one point but did not get the job. He believes it was because he pitched storylines based on titles and grudges.
On behalf of Fightful, we would like to extend our condolences to the family, friends, and fans of Scott Bowden.
