In the last couple of years before his death, Sandy Scott was involved with ACW Wrestling in Rocky Mount VA, helping out behind the scenes creatively and also acting as their "trouble shooter", a role in which he also served in Jim Crockett's Mid-Atlantic Championship Wrestling and Ted Turner's World Championship Wrestling decades earlier.

Eclipso and all the stars of ACW, along with stars from the NICW and BWC, honored the memory of Sandy at their monthly show in Rocky Mount on 4/10/10. Sandy's wife Sandra, daughter Tracy, and grandson Coleton were in attendance and were recognized.

Sandy's wrestling boots and other memorabilia were in the ring before the show, and the traditional ten bell salute was conducted with Sandy's family before the show. The night featured a great crowd, hot matches, and some Mid-Atlantic wrestling legends who dropped by to pay tribute as well including Jim Nelson, "The Boogie Man" Jimmy Valiant, Don and Rocky Kernodle, Ric McCord, and the voice of World Wide Wrestling Rich Landrum.
