NEWS: Doug Somers Passes Away

Posted in Misc, News

Douglas Somers, better known as Pretty Boy Doug Somers, has passed away at the age of 65, according to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer.

The cause of death is unknown as of this report.

At the height of Somers’ career, he was one half of the AWA World Tag Team Champions along side Playboy Buddy Rose.

Somers and Rose were managed by the late WWE Hall of Famer Sherri Martel, and famously feuded with Shawn Michaels and Marty Jannetty in the 80s.

According to Meltzer, Somers filed suit against WWE in 2011 over the use of footage featuring Somers on their DVDs and Classics on Demand.

The case was ruled in favor of the WWE.

On behalf of the entire staff at RingScoops, I’d like to send my condolences to the friends and family of Doug Somers.
