Tom Drake Undergoing Surgery

The CAC received word today that longtime Executive Board member, Tom Drake will be undergoing hip replacement surgery at the Mayo Clinic this Friday, January 25. Tom's surgery was originally scheduled for April; however, the hospital had a cancellation, so the surgery was moved up.
Tom is one of the most decorated and honored men in our business, having been honored by the Gulf Coast Wrestlers' Reunion, received the Pro Wrestling Hall of Fame Senator Hugh Farley Award, the Dan Gable International Wrestling Institute & Museum's Frank Gotch Award and the Cauliflower Alley Club's coveted Iron Mike Award.
We all wish Tom will through his surgery and recovery and look forward to seeing him in Mobile in March and Vegas in June! Maybe Tom can challenge fellow Board member Dick Beyer to a hip vs. hip match!
Get well soon, Tom!
