'''Henry Faggart''' (1930-2013) was an American {{Professional Wrestl|ing}}er and trainer from Concord, North Carolina as '''Jackie Fargo.''' He is best known for his work from the 1950s through the early 1980s in the Memphis and Alabama territories, though he and [[UnrelatedBrothers Don Fargo]] broke attendance records with their match against Wrestling/AntoninoRocca and Miguel Perez at Madison Square Garden in 1957. He is credited with introducing tables and chairs into the Southern brawling style in Memphis. He also trained Memphis' all-time #1 star, [[Wrestling/JerryLawler Jerry "The King" Lawler]] and, in the storyline, put together Steve Keirn and Stan Lane as Wrestling/TheFabulousOnes. He retired in 1984, though he [[TenMinuteRetirement had a few comeback matches]] in 1985 and 1991, and teamed up with Lane and Cory Macklin to defeat Lawler and Wrestling/TheRockNRollExpress at "Memphis Wrestling Throwback Night III- A Nightmare in Memphis" on October 30, 2004. Along with other Wrestling/NationalWrestlingAlliance legends, he appeared at ''[[Wrestling/{{TNA}} NWA TNA #1]]'' on June 19, 2002. Among his in-ring achievements, he was a 15x [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/us/tn/nwa/tn-nwa-t.html NWA World (Mid-America) Tag Team Champion]], a 22x [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/us/tn/cwa/awa-s-t.html Southern (Memphis) Tag Team Champion]] and a 1x [[http://www.wrestling-titles.com/us/ga/nwa/ga-nwa-t.html NWA (Georgia) World Tag Team Champion]]. He also originated the "Fargo Strut" later brought national by Wrestling/RicFlair and used by the Fabulous Ones and, later, Wrestling/JeffJarrett. He was inducted into the ''[[Wrestling/TheWrestlingObserverNewsletter Wrestling Observer Newsletter]]'' Hall of Fame in 1996. He died of heart failure at the age of 82 on June 24, 2013.
