Eddie Marlin was the on-screen General Manager of Continental Wrestling Association throughout the 1980s. He was "hired" by CWA Owner Jerry Jarrett to run the company. He worked primarily as a good guy, often sticking up for the faces. He often butted heads with the "Head Booker" of CWA, Tom Renesto, who tended to favor the heels.

In early 1988, Eddie Marlin was involved in a feud with former tag team partner Tommy Gilbert that resulted in the former friends wrestling in a Cowboy Boot Match. It began when Gilbert's son, Doug, interrupted Marlin who was being interviewed by Lance Russell, and accused Marlin of showing favoritism towards Jerry Lawler. As Marlin argued against Doug Gilbert, Tommy Gilbert attacked him from behind. Then, the Gilberts proceeded to drag Marlin to the ring, where Tommy Gilbert busted Marlin open with a cowboy boot. In the following weeks, Marlin challenged his former partner to a Cowboy Boot Match, where the winner would be the first one to remove the opponent's cowboy boots. Eddie Marlin would go on to win that match, and defeat his former friend.
