Didn't watch much in the 80's or 90's. My all time fav was The Mongolian Stomper. Watching Bulldog Bob Brown & Bob Giegel was also a hoot. My dad used to tell me stories about watching Gorgeous George.

I love the heels of wrestling.

I was fortunate enough to watch Bulldog and Rufus live once. If I remember correctly it was at the Smith Center high school gym. They held the Central States Tag Team title at the time. I got to watch quite a few pro wrestling matches while working in the concession stands at Memorial Hall in KCK, but the match in S.C. was always my favorite.

Jessie Ventura was governor for heaven's sake, and he gets no love?

I smell a conspiracy theory.

You cannot count anyone elected by Minnesota... they put Al Franken in the Senate for Pete's sake.

"The Enforcer" Arn Anderson. Spectacular wrestler.

Wrong era but either Gorgeous George or Kansan Wild Red Berry; both in the 1950's. More modern: The Undertaker!

Mad Dog Vachan--Bobbie "the Brain" Heenan---- The Iron Shiek---- Rock N Roll Zumoff They were all earlier than that but they are good ones to mention

Pro wrestling is way better than reality tv. How come it is not on tv much?

I always thought Larry "The Axe" Hennig was good.

I have been fortunate to not like professional wrestling. I think it is a sham, it is too loud and it is meaningless. I hope you fans will some day enjoy a real sport.

Flyin' Fuji Yamada must have been good. How would you prepare for that match.

The Birdman...Coco B. Ware, Leaping Lenny, Jake The Snake Roberts.

I remember seeing a Texas Championship match down in Midland many years ago.

Joe Louis was the celebrity referee, so you knew somebody was gonna get laid out. Can't remember who the wrestlers were as they were regional talent at most. Sure enough, the villianous one pulled something out of his tights and jacked his opponent up while Louis was distracted by the manager. Louis counted the other guy out then noticed the bad guy's weapon. He reached over to take it away and the wrestler pulled his fist back as if to intimidate Joe. Boom goes the dynamite!

I'll always remember how caught up many of the fans were. When a couple of the guys in the ring were going at it with folding chairs, a lot of the audience stood up and grabbed their chairs as if readying to strike anyone that looked cross-ways at them. Exciting stuff for a kid!

I think Randy "The Macho Man" Savage had to have been the best personification of steroid induced self delusion and entitlement. I know he was playing a part, but he played it so well that the line between reality and fiction was blurred. I think he was the Marlon Brando of the 80's super wrestlers. He is my choice.
