  1. Former WWE head of security Jim Dotson has passed away. Many will remember him from his signature black shirt, hat and goatee being seen countless times on WWE programming in the late 1990s and early 2000s.

    "Jim Dotson passed on December 10th. He was loved and admired by family and friends. Jim spent years dealing with health issues including a serious incurable eye disease which kept him from working over the past several years. He did not have any life or health insurance. He spent his time caring for his elderly mother who is unable to cover any expenses. Jim helped many people during his 49 year life and we now need to help him. He was a long time vollunteer helping the handicapped and those in need. Now we need to honor Jim. Any amount helps and the family thanks each and every one of you," a statement on the page read.

  2. So sad. He stood out as much as the wrestlers. He may have just been a security guard, but his image was so memorable! When I recently went back and watched some old Attitude Era PPV's it felt so nostalgic seeing him again. I wondered what he was up to.

  3. I remember him. That guy was as in as good as shape as arguably any of the wrestlers were, and is what ALL bodyguards should aspire to look like, unlike these pathetic, average looking schmoes that pass for security nowadays. He even used to get physically involved with some of the wrestlers when things got hectic and a little out-of-hand at times (I recall him spearing Steve Blackman for getting in his face or something.)
