MWR Editor’s Note: I have had the pleasure of covering a few matches of Eric Wayne throughout the years. The first, I believe was with Pro Wrestling Epic and the latest was at High Risk Wrestling.
Wayne is a true professional that is always fun to work with. In the ring he is one of the best, and if he is half the husband that he is a wrestler then his future wife Mallorie Bradley has hit the jackpot.
Congrats to both Eric and Mallorie from the MWR family and we wish you happiness forever in this union.
CHERRY VALLEY, Ark. – Professional wrestling fans in Cherry Valley, Ark., got a little bonus post-match memory as Ringside Championship Wrestling (RCW) Superstar Eric Wayne proposed to girlfriend Mallorie Bradley at the conclusion of the evening’s main event.
Wayne had just lost his match against Memphis Wrestling legend “Dangerous” Doug Gilbert when the two were in process of ending a 3-decade long rivalry by shaking hands. RCW Promoter Brian Thompson entered the ring and scolded Wayne for the defeat, claiming that the third generation wrestler was booked to be more vicious and to end Gilbert, not just the feud. With Bradley in the ring, Thompson made derogatory remarks about her relationship with Wayne which infuriated him. Wayne backed Thompson into a corner and the promoter begged off.
As Wayne and Gilbert made amends, Thompson reached into his pocket for what appeared to be a foreign object and turned Wayne around. Thompson’s punch was blocked and Wayne bent the promoter’s arm to obtain the believed-to-be weapon. After securing the object, Wayne turned around, took a knee and used it – an engagement ring – to make the proposal. Of course, Bradley said “Yes!”
A Facebook video of the proposal has been seen by more than 5,000 viewers and now the video of the incident is available on YouTube at https://youtu.be/1lCPSeeKrvI
