|Well, I remember being a kid and growing up watching REAL
Wrestling ! I saw legends in their primes! And there lots of different
Organizations . Like, the N.W.A. ( National Wrestling Association) , A.W.A.
(American Wrestling Association) and the W.W.W.F. ( The World Wide Wrestling
Federation . Now the World Wrestling Entertainment). Is this what wrestling
has come to? Entertainment? There was a time when wrestlers looked like Big,
Burly, Longshoremen. Short socks, trunks , and Wrestling booties . I mean, Not
even knee pads ! Strongmen like Bruno Samartino . The W.W.W.F'S greatest
Champion. Before Hulk Hogan came to town .Later the man who changed the Face
of Wrestling , Superstar Billy Graham . Not the Preacher, the wrestler. And
over at the N.W.A., Such champions like the Brisco Brothers, Jack , and Jerry
. And the Funk Brothers , Dory, and Terry . Then Harley Race, Dusty Rhodes .
All at one time or another ( Harley Race several times over) N.W.A. Champions
. And you had greats like Verne Gagne, and Nick Bockwinkle , A.W.A. Champions
and Bitter enemies. .
|where wrestlers who wrestled for peanuts! And broke
EVERY bone in their bodies to put on a great match for the fans . Such names
as Dick Murdock, Mil Mascaras , Pedro Morales , Tony Atlas , ANDRE The GIANT.
Great villains of the squared circle such as Superstar Billy Graham, Ox
Baker,Ivan Koloff , Baron Von Rashke, Nick Bockwinkle , Moose Cholok , The
Assasins. Nowadays, it's blatently thrown in your face that it's fake. Bake
then, you knew it was fake but, you didn't want to admit it. Today you can see
"SO CALLED ENEMIES" mugging for the cameras and showing up on television shows
together. What's up with that? .
|I can remember when wrestlers took their
matches out into the parking lot and the fans would all run outside! It was
that real!! Now , just the cameraman and the wrestlers are allowed outside .
Boo-Hoo . Well , I will be bringing you more memories and stories, and pics in
the very near future . I may be a huge old school fan but, my Brother is an
old school fanatic! He's the real wrestling fan . But he's unavailable . So I
will be bringing you such stories and names from the past . Announcers ,
Wrestlers , pics, Magazine covers. Wrestling hall of famers with yours truly .
