Philly's S.D. Jones passes away

Conrad "S.D. Jones" Efraim passed away Sunday in his native Antigua after suffering a stroke this past week.

Efraim, 63, was a popular preliminary wrestler (jobber) for the World Wrestling Federation. He most recently appeared with the WWE, inducting former tag team partner Anthony "Tony Atlas" White into the company's Hall of Fame.

Jones was the top star among enhancement talent during the 70s and early 80s before the company went national and was billed as "Philadelphia's favorite son."


His most famous match on a national level was at the inaugural WrestleMania, when he lost to Atlantic City native Chris "King Kong Bundy" Pallies in nine seconds.
