Myers held prominent heavyweight championships in several territories, most notably the Central States territory, where he was the NWA Central States Heavyweight Champion fourteen times. He also held various tag team championships, as well as a brief reign as NWA World Heavyweight Champion having defeated Orville Brown in November 1947. His championship was largely forgotten when the National Wrestling Alliance was formed a year later, recognizing Brown as champion.
After wrestling, Myers acted as sheriff in Buchanan County, Missouri and promoted a Sonny Myers Carnival for 22 years.
Sonny Myers died after a long illness on May 7, 2007.
