Former AWA Announcer Passes Away
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 06.24.2014



- The Cauliflower Alley Club has announced that Larry Shipley, best known for his announcing duties for AWA under the name Larry Nelson, passed away last night after a fight with pancreatic cancer.

Shipley began his career as a deejay on Minnesota radio and became involved in wrestling after he invited AWA personality onto the show to boost his ratings. Shipley became friends with announcer Ken Resnick, who brought Shipley on board as Larry Nelson and made him the host for a show created for Canadian TV as well as ring announcing. Nelson served as the face of AWA during the promotion's battle with WWF in the 1980s.

On behalf of 411, our condolences to the family, friends and fans of Mr. Shipley.
