"Beautiful Bobby" Eaton

"Beautiful Bobby" Eaton was born Robert Lee Eaton on August 14, 1958 in Huntsville, Alabama.
"Beautiful Bobby" is probably best known by wrestling fans as one half of the Midnight Express.
During his career, Bobby has worked for several wrestling promotions including Mid-America Wrestling, Continental Wrestling Association, Mid-South Wrestling, World Class Championship Wrestling, Jim Crockett Promotions, WCW, Smoky Mountain Wrestling, ECW and TNA Wrestling.
Although most of his fame has been as a tag team wrestler, Bobby has held a few individual titles.
He was the NWA Georgia Television Champion, WCW World Television Champion, CWA World Heavyweight Champion, NWA Mid-America Heavyweight Champion, NWA Mid-America Television Champion and the SMW Beat the Champ Television Champion.

Even though Bobby wrestled most of his career as a heel, he is known as one of the nicest guys in pro wrestling.
Both Mick Foley and Stone Cold Steve Austin have pointed this out.
He is also known as one of the most under-rated wrestlers to have ever stepped into a ring.
