Bowden was a manager in the USWA territory in the mid-90s and would later dedicate his time to being a great historian of the territory, including a podcast and blog called Kentucky Fried Rasslin. Bowden would have been 49 next week.
Many of his contemporaries have released statements through social media, including Brian last who runs the Arcadian Vanguard Podcast Network which Bowden’s podcast was apart of
Really shocked and saddened to hear of Scott Bowden's passing. An underrated manager, a truly gifted writer, and a genuinely funny guy. Our recording sessions were always hysterical. Go read one of his articles or listen to one of his podcasts today.

I was hoping it was a goofy hoax, but it looks like it’s true. Hope you have peace @TravScottBowden. We had fun late night Fridays talking MEMPHIS for five freaking hours at points, lol…I’m just kinda shocked. Kinda all I can even say now. RIP man
