Professional Wrestler. His real name was Larry A. Booker. He debuted in 1979 under the ring name Larry Latham. Larry formed a tag team with Carl Fergie called "The Ragin' Cajuns" managed by Billy Spears in the Gulf Coast territory. Early in his career, he wrestled in Memphis and Mid-South. His first big push came as a member of the Blond Bombers with Wayne Farris (The Honky Tonk Man). The Blond Bombers were involved in a heated feuds with several baby faces across the two competing Tennessee promotions, appearing in both Nick Gulas Nashville based territory, and Jerry Jarrett's Memphis area. The team was managed by Danny Davis. Their signature moment was the now famous "Tupelo Concession Stand Brawl" against Jerry Lawler and Bill Dundee. In later years he decided to return as "Moondog Spot". The Moondogs feuded with The Fabulous Ones, The Rock 'n' Roll Express, and Midnight Express. The Moondogs became a regular gimmick in the Memphis promotion featuring a revolving door of wrestlers who teamed with Larry. He became a WWF World Tag Team Champion as a replacement for Moondog King in May 1981. He held the title along with Moondog Rex until they were defeated by Rick Martel and Tony Garea on July 21, 1981. He was a former NWA Mid America Tag Team champion with Wayne (Honky Tonk Man) Ferris as The Blond Bombers. In November, 1985 he wrestled in the tournament on the WWF pay-per-view event Wrestling Classic. He defeated Terry Funk in the first round by count out, then lost to Junkyard Dog in the quarterfinals. In March 2003, he made a few appearances as Moondog Spot in NWA:TNA, which is known today as Total Nonstop Action Wrestling. He suffered a massive heart attack while wrestling in the ring with a four way tag team match at Jerry Lawler's "birthday bash" show in Memphis, Tennessee. He was pronounced dead at the Methodist hospital. (bio by: Shock)
