Gordon Solie Brian Cullen Ace the Punk Star 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.
