Gordon Solie Brian Cullen Ace the Punk Star ace328bc@yahoo.com Gordon Solie passed away today at the age of 71 in New Port Richey, Florida. Mr. Solie was the finest wrestling announcer of all time. I began my lifelong addiction to wrestling listening to him broadcast the matches on "Championship Wrestling from Florida" back in the mid 70s. My parents hated wrestling, but I had a little black and white TV tuned in to a horrible station with virtually no picture, and Gordon Solie made it all come to life: the Brisco brothers, the Funks, the Assassins, the American Dream, Dusty Rhodes, Ric Flair, and on and on. Anyone who ever heard him knows what I mean. Rest in peace, Mr. Solie.
