THE ROYAL KANGAROOS

In all of the years that JIM CROCKETT PROMOTIONS was in existence, two of the very top heel teams who ever wrestled in the territory were THE ROYAL KANGAROOS and THE INFERNOS.

These guys were rugged and down-right brutal in their matches.

THE INFERNOS would kick their opponents in the head with a loaded boot or even throw fire in your face (just ask Les Thatcher about that).

THE ROYAL KANGAROOS would beat their opponents to a bloody pulp, then attack them with boomerangs.

Fans absolutley HATED these two teams. Fans also bought thousands of wrestling tickets to see them.

THE ROYAL KANGAROOS and THE INFERNOS did what they were supposed to do night after night. They filled wrestling arenas.

During their run in the MID-ATLANTIC WRESTLINA area, THE ROYAL KANGAROOS consisted of LORD JONATHAN BOYD and his cousin NORMAN FREDERICK CHARLES III. Sadly, BOYD has passed away, but CHARLES is still with us.

The original twosome who formed THE INFERNOS was ROCKY SMITH and FRANKIE CAIN. Their manager, J.C. DYKES, and ROCKY are  gone, but FRANKIE survives.

Today, I salute JCP greats NORMAN FREDERICK CHARLES III and FRANKIE CAIN and thank them for their dedication and sacrifices they gave to the business.

INFERNO FRANKIE CAIN and J.C. DYKES take exception to my blog.
