    Thanks for the memories RRR! Great times for sure. True wrassling story right here, ask me how I know. So during the seventies North Carolina was the Mecca for all things professional wrestling. It just so happens there are several Marine Corps and Army bases there. You want to fire up the troops, advertise a Russian or Iranian tag team. So a Marine I know scores some nose bleed seats to watch the matches highlighting the Russian tag team with a combined weight of somewhere North of 800 pounds. They would whip the crowd of young drunk super patriotic Marines into a frenzy of mouth frothing dog barking mayhem. Keep in mind this is the seventies! So at end of the night they challenge any Marine in the audience to enter the ring with them and go toe to toe. If any of you know a Marine you can imagine how this turns out. While the match may have been choreographed a bit I can assure you the post match challenge to Marines was not. Those two guys beat the holy stuffings out of several Marines, and I mean beat them. As me and my buddy were making our way to the ring for our turn we watched multiple guys get very unceremoniously tossed into the crowd by these two “Russian” wrestlers. I think they were from Texas actually! Hah! Anyway thru the tequila fog we watched one of our buddies come sailing at us with his recently broken arm and we decided to, in a fit of true patriotism and courage, to wad our cups up and throw our beers at the Russians! Holy smokes they were huge! Hah! Anyway thanks again RRR for all the memories!

      George Becker and Johnny Weaver were the good guys for a long time. Who was the 2 bad guys where one of them supposedly had some kind of thing in his boot that he would do some stupid little stomp dance when the ref wasn't looking to activate the "thing"... and then kick his opponent, who would then act like he was dying? I can't remember their names. Then there was Swede Hanson....and the Anderson Brothers, and who can forget Brute Bernard and Skull Murphy! Ivan Kolov (sp?) was another one. I actually met Ivan Kolov in Fredericktown, Ohio at Wal Mart, when my wife and I went shopping with her uncle. He was making an appearance to help raise money for some local charity. Talked to him for about 10 minutes....was a nice old guy.

        Junkyard Dog, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Ricky The Dragon Steamboat, and Bret The Hitman Hart. I watched those guys a bunch.

        Curt Henning was another one from Minnesota, we had quite a few come out of the state.

          I, on a personal note, lost that business at CNN and TBS in the 2k’s after decades of rewards and pocket cash! I do not miss it at all, and glad the competition is dealing with the liberal fools at both sites today! The wrestling falls right in line with this stupidity! Just a thought and opinion!

                    I remember them well. And two of the bad guys were Bronco Lubich and Aldo Bogni along with their manager Homer O'Dell who would whack their opponents with his cane whenever he got a chance. Another couple of bad guys were called the Bolos. And there were the Kentuckians... two big bearded guys with a combined weight over 700 lbs. I saw them once at Atlantic Mills.. a large department store in Charlotte, NC when I was a kid in the 60s. My grandfathers both watched this every weekend.
                    Just remembered Rip Hawk and Wahoo McDaniel.

                      It has been super cool to read which guys remember which wrestlers. A dead give away to the posters age! Hah! With all the folks from North East on this Forum how is it we have skipped Pepper Gomez? Dickey Slater, still no mention of Dusty Rhodes? Jerry the Brawler, Sgt Slaughter. Jake the Snake. And I mean cmon Chyna? Holy smokes she made me pant! Hah!
