NWA Texas Stampede Wrestling is, in truth, a continuation of the legacy left by the promotions that gave wrestling fans in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex the most exciting and most competitive professional wrestling that could be found anywhere in the world. The list of names that are and have been closely associated with that legacy is long and distinguished. Many are very famous and well known by wrestling fans everywhere. But, there are some who are a part of the wrestling family that proudly made this area their home base that may not be as familiar to fans outside the Metroplex. Regardless the degree of notoriety, if they were one of those we, who are closely associated with the area consider a part of that family of wrestlers, there is a bond that cannot be broken by time, distance or even death.
Ravishing Ray Evans was one of our brothers and a highly respected member of our family. He may not have been as well known on the national stage as some of our other family members, but he was an important part of this select group of competitors and contributors to the Metroplex wrestling scene for many years.
Ray was a Pro in every sense of the word. Inside the wrestling business, you are judged by the content or your work and the way you go about dealing with those you work with. To those inside the locker room, being the most famous or the most decorated with championship belts is secondary to the quality of your matches and the character you display. Judging with those criteria, Ravishing Ray Evans was a true Champion to all of us who knew him and worked with him.
NWA Texas Stampede Wrestling is honoring Ravishing Ray Evans with a special portrait and will be donating 100% of the proceeds raised from the purchase of this portrait directly to his family in order help with financial obligations left with his recent passing. We are encouraging our fans to help with this effort by purchasing one of these memorial pictures and know that by doing so you are contributing to a worthy cause and the memory of one of the most beloved members of our wrestling fraternity and family.
God Bless you all for helping out and supporting this effort.
