Portland Wrestlecast: Jerry Grey and Bobby Jaggers' tall tales


We continue our conversation with Jerry Grey. On this episode, he talks about how his relationship with Billy Jack seemingly affected his career in Portland Wrestling as he was stuck in the middle of disagreements between Billy Jack, Rip Oliver, and Playboy Buddy Rose.

In May 1985, Don Owen sold out the Portland Memorial Coliseum with his 60th Anniversary show that featured Roddy Piper, Ric Flair, Rick Martel, The Road Warriors, Sgt. Slaughter, and more. Jerry Grey was also on that card and gives us his memories. In addition, he discusses Bobby Jaggers, who had a reputation as quite the storyteller even by pro wrestling standards. We talk about Jaggers, his stories, and what other wrestlers thought about it.

Jerry Grey is dealing with Stage 4 cancer. He's set up a Go Fund Me page for donations to help cover tests, treatment, medicine, etc.
