Clipping found in Tallahassee Democrat in Tallahassee, Florida on Sep 11, 1983. Missy Hyatt & Eddie Mansfield wedding announcement (Tallahassee Democrat 9/11/83)
Missy Hyatt briefly was married to Eddy Mansfield before she broke into wrestling. It's been 10 plus years since I read her book, but apparently she never mentioned this fact. The info was leaked by Jake the Snake in the early 2000s but Bix just recently unearthed the evidence.
I am the only geek on this board who could remotely care. I know.
She was sucking Jake's cock within a year, so the marriage must have gone splendidly. Supposedly Mansfield thought she was heir to the Hyatt empire and Hyatt thought he was making big $$$$ as a wrestler.
If Missy Hyatt was old enough to get married in 1983 then, just based on the Age of Consent in Florida, that means that she's at least five years older than I thought she was, which makes me feel a little bit better that she's so busted looking, now. But only a little.
Allegedly, Powers quit so fast that he did not even stick around to grab his paycheck. There was another journeyman in Dallas around this same time frame named Jim Powell or somesuch and the record books have been screwed up for years as Jim Powers is listed for Powell's matches.
