He was one of the best characters/managers that you ever saw….First saw “Big Daddy Dink” on the Championship Wrestling from Florida with Dusty Rhodes, Ed “The Bull Gantner”, Kevin Sullivan, The Reverend Billy C. Wirtz and others and then we all got a treat when Sir Oliver Humperdink came to the Mid-Atlantic area and established the “House of Humperdink”, working primarily with the Freebirds, but also interacting and the acting part is the focus with, Kevin Nash, Scott Hall and Diamond Dallas Page……He was very entertaining and he also spent some key time, working with Scott “Bam Bam” Bigelow up in the WWF….Gone, but not forgotten, Sir Oliver Humperdink, Big Daddy Dink, Big Red, or just John Sutton……..
Pro wrestling manager Sir Oliver Humperdink (a/k/a John Sutton) died overnight at age 62 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. He had been battling cancer and declined to undergo chemotherapy.
