    (January 26, 1929-June 28, 2000)
    Commentator for the NWA, WCW, GCW, NJPW
    Known as 'The Dean of Professional Wrestling Announcers'
    When he was announcing something that he didn't like, viewers were able to tell easily.
    He left WCW because he couldn't come to terms with the changes that the business was going through.
    Since he's been out of the business for several years, many of the fans that jumped on the wrestling bandwagon in the 90's and since have no idea who he is or the contributions he made to the business.
    He was scheduled to appear on the Heroes of Wrestling Pay-Per-View and many bought the show to see him but he never appeared.
    He was diagnosed with cancer in the larynx, likely caused from his 55 years of smoking.
    Many consider him the greatest wrestling commentator of all-time.
    His vast knowledge of wrestling earned him the nickname 'The Dean of Professional Wrestling Announcers.'
    He announced more matches on television than any man who has ever lived.
    He said the greatest single moment of his wrestling career was when Leroy McGuirk, a blind promoter, listened to Solie call a match between Danny Hodge and Hiro Matsuda and told Solie that it was the first time in years that he could see a match.
    He was given the PWI Editor's Award in 1989.
    He's a member of the WCW Hall of Fame, the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame and the Wrestling-Observers Hall of Fame.
