Virgil passes away at age 61


We are all sadden among other WWE, WWE fans, families and all of the passing of Michael Jones, better known as, Virgil.  Virgil began in the WWE in 1987.  He was the bodyguard for the "Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase.  Virgil carried DiBiase's cash and would give and receive a beatdown.  There days together did not last long as Virgil was tired of being humiliated and embarrassed.  At the Royal Rumble 1991, Virgil turned on Dibiase and formed an alliance with Roddy Piper.  That led to a Million Dollar Title match at WrestleMania VII.  Virgil won the match.  

Virgil was considered as one of the top wrestlers in the early 90s according to Pro Wrestling Illustrated.  He wrestled in AWA, NJCW, USWL, and WWE.  

Our condolence to the Jones' family, friends, and fans.
