Eye-Witness Account Of What Really Happened With Bob Backlund Incident At Verne Gagne’s Funeral

While there has been some conflicting reports regarding what went down with WWE Hall Of Famer Bob Backlund at legendary AWA promoter Verne Gagne’s recent funeral, former AWA announcer Mick Karch, who was there, shared his side of the story in a new post published on his official Facebook page.

Karch wrote the following about the story:

“If you weren’t there, it is pretty absurd to say it didn’t go down as reported, even if you’re a fan of Backlund (and there is nothing wrong with that). I will say one more time, Greg Gagne was wrapping up his eulogy for Verne when Backlund stood up, made some shouting references to representing WWE, and then told Greg, `Don’t talk back to me!’ He smiled and sat back down. Greg’s response was, `Who was that?’ Someone said, `Bob Backlund,’ and Greg responded, ‘Who let him in here.’ Backlund hadn’t just spoken the words, he was shouting as if he was cutting a promo from his Mr. Backlund days.”
