On display in the ring before the show
were Sandy's wrestling boots, an old Crockett promotions photo album
sold at the matches in the 1960s, a Starland Arena poster, his
sportcoat worn in the early 80s when he was the "special NWA
trouble-shooter" for Crockett Promotions on TV, and his watch. The
watch was a tip of the hat to Sandy by those that worked for him
many years ago when he was an agent for Crockett Promotions in towns
like Greenville SC and Roanoke VA. Sandy was notorious with the boys
for insisting that wrestlers be on time at his towns.
