Robert Jeaudoin, who was best known as Hangman Bobby Jaggers, passed away in recent days. We don't have more details on this. Jeaudoin was 64.
Bobby Jaggers was a solid star in a number of territories, hitting almost everywhere in the United States at one time or another with the exception of WWF.
A native of Kansas, Jaggers, who at times tried to emulate Dusty Rhodes, formed a tag team called the Kansas Jayhawks, first with Dutch Mantell in Jim Crockett Promotions and later with Dan Kroffat (Phil LaFon) in Puerto Rico.
Jaggers, with blond hair and a physique that resembled a young Dusty Rhodes, was a good brawler and a first-rate talker. He won countless championships, working as a headliner in many smaller territories.
