Billy Red Lyons, Dead at 77

In Memorium

Billy Red Lyons was 77. He was the Canadian wrestling personality who promoted WWF live events throughout Canada from the mid-1980s through early 1990s, with the phrase “don’tcha dare miss it” becoming a signature ending to his promos.

I can't tell you how many times I heard him say "don’tcha dare miss it" during Maple Leaf Wrestling, a show I watched every Saturday afternoon as a kid.
