Terry Gordy

Terry Ray Gordy Sr., 40, of Soddy-Daisy died Monday, July 16, 2001, at his residence.  Mr. Gordy was a native of Rossville, member of the First Baptist Church of Soddy-Daisy and a professional wrestler for 24 years under many associations. He was known as "Terry Bam Bam" of the Fabulous Freebirds.

Survivors include his son, Terry Ray Gordy Jr. of 
East Ridge; two daughters, Miranda Gordy and 
Amber Gordy of Ringgold; one sister, Marsheena 
Aslinger of Soddy-Daisy; parents, Billy and Mildred 
Gordy of Rossville; one nephew, Richard Aslinger; 
and one niece, Candace Sutton, both of Soddy-Daisy.

Funeral services will be held Thursday, July 19, at 
11 a.m. in the chapel with the Revs. Mike Gregg 
and Richard Hutchison officiating.

Burial will follow in Tennessee-Georgia Memorial Park. The family will receive friends at the funeral home today from 1-4 and 6-8 p.m.  Arrangements are by the South Crest Chapel of Lane Funeral Home, Rossville.

"I'll never forget when I was a kid and (Gordy) won the UWF Title--The rest of the country was caught up in Hulkamania, but our junior high school knew that if Hulk ever left the protected environment of the WWF and came to our part of the country, Bamm Bamm would eat his lunch. "

        Travis Cook, Wrestling Classics Message Board, 7/16/01.

"I do remember the first time I saw him in UWF, all I could think was,"Jeez, who the Hell could beat that guy? He's a monster."

Hello and welcome back to another installment of my UWF memories.  I am Charles Laffere. As you probably know by now, Terry Gordy passed away this week. While it is sad that he has died at such a young age, it is somewhat comforting to know how many lives he touched during his career. Vince has altered KM's index page to pay tribute to Terry. The Wrestling Classics message board has been filled with outpourings of remembrances and sympathy. However, Kayfabe Memories and Wrestling Classics aren't the only websites mourning his death -Wrestleline, the Pro Wrestling Torch and 1Wrestling.Com have featured fine tributes to Gordy.  More...
