All-time great Bobby Fulton announced he has been released from the hospital and is now recovering at home after a bout with double pneumonia.  Fulton had been diagnosed with sepsis as well but thankfully, doctors were able to resolve those issues.  He was hospitalized last week while in North Carolina.

Fulton, 61, competed as a professional wrestler since he was 16 years old, originally in Ohio before working for a number of different territories including Memphis, Mid-South, World Class Championship Wrestling, Jim Crockett Promotions, WCW, Smoky Mountain Wrestling and internationally, Stampede Wrestling and All Japan Pro Wrestling. 

Fulton and the late Tommy Rogers, as The Fantastics, were one of the best teams of the 1980s, specifically when feuding with The Midnight Express and The Sheepherders.  Fulton made at least one appearance in the WWF in the late 1990s, wrestling his long-time partner Tommy Rogers as part of a tournament to crown the WWF Light Heavyweight Champion.

In recent years, Fulton successfully battled throat cancer and has remained active around professional wrestling, promoting and making appearances at different wrestling convention and signing events.    He underwent a shoulder replacement surgery earlier this year and has been promoting conventions and live events in Ohio regularly, having great success. sends Fulton and the Hines family our continued best and well wishes.
