| They really had people wanting to
LITERALLY kill them! That's how good they where at their craft, considering
that pro wrestling is of course entertainment .
| On the flip side of the coin you
had heroes like , Bruno Sammartino , Mil Mascaras ,Andre the Giant, Dick the
Bruiser,The Crusher! Wrestlers who commanded respect. And they got it, from
not only the fans, but from their opponents who were their sworn enemies! And
pattented moves? Man, the moves had cool names too! Like , the spinning toe
hold, the flying press, small package hold, fireman's carry, the camel clutch,
and who could forget, the IRON CLAW?
| Man , when the Baron fixed that baby on
your forehead, your skullbone was toast . TOAST!! What about their gimmicks?
Oh boy, you had Mil Mascaras (the man of a thousand masks) . He would get his
mask ripped off, and another one was underneath!You had matches like "HAIR VS.
HAIR" the loser had his head shaved by the winner . Texas strap match! Two
Wrestlers had a leather strap tied to their wrists and when the bell rung, The
wrestlers got to whipping!! And NO discualification ! That was the best! How

wrestling . If I only had a time Machine . .
