Scott Armstrong and Brian James announced on Twitter on Sunday that their mother, Vida Gail James, passed away. “This morning, our Mother, Vda Gail James, the Matriarch of the James/Armstrong family, went to be with the Lord,” they both wrote in a Tweet.

Brian James is a WWE Hall of Famer and still works backstage with the company. Armstrong is a former WWE referee and producer, and he was furloughed in April. Both men are a second-generation wrestler, as his father, “Bullet” Bob Armstrong, had a lengthy in-ring career. The Armstrong family produced several other wrestlers, as Brad Armstrong and Steve Armstrong also entered the family business.
