Any fans of old professional wrestling? The Funks, The Briscos, The Andersons, Harley, Race, Nick Bockwinkel, Bruno Sammartino, Bob Backlund, Wahoo Mcdaniel, and others. Wrestling was great before Mcmahon, Bischoff, and Russo ruined it! I miss the old wrestling. I am unable to even sit through Raw for 5 minutes.

I remember seeing my first wrestling match at the old D.C. Armory (best hot dog on the planet!). There was an Indian strap match with Wahoo McDaniel and some other man who's name is eluding me at the moment. I am wanting to say Dusty Rhodes, but I know that is not right.

I agree, Vince McMahon ruined wrestling. I used to love the old AWA and NWA, and Championship Wrestling From Florida.

Im thinking maybe Tully Blanchard. Wahoo had a brief run as a heel in 84 where he was friends with Blanchard but he eventually turned back to face. Im thinking this would have to be 84 because the Mid Atlantic territory did not go up that far previosuly.

Putski had a run in the AWA in the 70's but by the latter part of the decade he settled into Mcmahon land.
