Superstars and Legends react to the passing of Tracy Smothers
Tracy Smothers took two young kids from Canada trying to “tour” the southern United States, with $1.50 a day to spend on food, saw a dilemma we put ourselves in to try and get experience, and took us under his wing.

he drove us to make the next town so we could eat our next meal. He found floors, couches or other talent who had spare space in their hotel rooms for us to sleep. On those drives he dispensed his knowledge. Always with a laugh and a twinkle in his eye. And we soaked it up. 2/3— Adam (Edge) Copeland (@EdgeRatedR) October 28, 2020
He was a great man. He truly knew what paying it forward meant. I will miss him. 3/3— Adam (Edge) Copeland (@EdgeRatedR) October 28, 2020
I just heard the news about Tracy Smothers. In my early years as a wrestler myself and @SexyChuckieT got to spend a lot of time with Tracy. He always knew how to put a smile on peoples faces.— Ricochet (@KingRicochet) October 28, 2020
Rest In Power my friend.
You will be missed. ❤️
Sorry to hear about the passing of Tracy Smothers. I saw him last about a year ago. He was so happy in the ring. He was a good man. RIP Tracy.— Eric Bischoff (@EBischoff) October 28, 2020

Tracy Smothers was the man, plain and simple.
I wish I had had the chance to be around him a lot more.

Tracey Smothers was always an absolute pleasure to be around in ECW. Always smiling and laughing. A good brother.— Bully Ray (@bullyray5150) October 28, 2020
I remember giving Tracy a bottle of ‘Absinthe’ as a gift to take back to America & he was convinced I’d given him a bottle of ‘abscess’— DRAKE MAVERICK (@WWEMaverick) October 28, 2020
