FORMER WWF ENHANCEMENT LEGEND SPECIAL DELIVERY JONES PASSES AWAY

By Dave Scherer on 2008-10-27 10:48:20

Conrad Efraim, known to the masses as Special Delivery Jones back in the old WWF, passed away Sunday in native Antigua a few days after suffering a stroke.  He was 63 years old.

Back in the days when promotions rarely put marquee matches on TV, SD was one of the great "enhancement talents" of all time.  A match with him was different than your usual "jobber" bout because Jones would get in a lot of offense and have a competitive match, which his opponent had to work to win.  While he did get more of a push earlier in his career, his is best remembered for being a top enhancement guy during the early years of Vince McMahon's WWF.

We pass along our condolences to his family.
