For many fans in St. Louis, Gary Jackson is truly one of the best wrestlers in the past 3 decades. Known as “The Great One”, Jackson has entertained fans with exciting matches and reminding them of the Rules.
What many may not know is that Jackson has been a proud American for the past 25-years serving our country. Last week prior to making his way to the packed house at the Historic South Broadway Athletic Club, Jackson officially retired from the Missouri Air Force National Guard as a Master Sargent.
We were able to catch up with Jackson was still in his military uniform entering the building straight from the honorary ceremony at Jefferson Barracks, along with his grandson Terrance Woods.
Jackson would go onto defeat Brandon Gallagher with his Cloverleaf submission in the middle of the ring to add another victory in his illustrious career.
This Saturday night, fans can see Jackson in action in East Carondelet, Illinois for SICW taking on the 2013 MWR Future Star of the Year Alexander Rudolph.
Thankfully for the fans of the area, Jackson shows no sign of slowing down.
A champion wrestler
And a proud American
We salute you Gary today here at Missouri Wrestling Revival on Feb 15 on a day we would like to call “Gary Jackson Day”.
