We at wrestlecrapradio.blogspot.com are saddened to learn that Tim Roberts, who wrestled as Tim Arson, is no longer with us. For those who don't know, Tim was the wrestler who made that infamous one-time appearance as The "ECW Zombie" at WWE's re-launch of ECW back in 2006. The Zombie's promo, which pretty much consisted of him screaming "ARRRRRGGHHHHHH!", even became one of our favorite WCR sound-bites. He was also the main topic of episode #30 of Wrestlecrap Radio, and for those who missed it, here's the "Minisode" from that show from June 16, 2006:
RD Reynolds even conducted an interview with Tim for WCR but it was never broadcast due to technical difficulties (Deal forgot to press "record"?). However, a second attempt was made three years later and RD even got a "Trip to The Grocery" story out of him for episode #150 (July 17, 2009):
