Default i guess ur sort of right...

A guy in his 50's believing that, that stuff is real must be koo koo!!LOL.. I mean i watched, and loved it all the way till high-school.. After that i woke up.. In fact my sister just got wwe tix given to her for the bouts in trenton coming up.. I have no desire.. Heck the last one i went to featured King kong bundy, Hill-billy Jim, Andre, orndorff..

I've been watching since I was about 12,there were times I questioned the 'fakeness' of it as there just seemed to be really convincing feuds.
Nowadays most of it bores me b/c I know how it's constructed,I'm more interested in the behind-the-scenes politics of it now...who's getting fired,blackballed,etc. I also catch many of the off the record interviews with them on YouTube and such and many of them seem so bitter about things.
But that's business I guess.

Chief Jay Stronbow is indeed Italian. His name is Joe Scarpa. He started out using his real name. Initially Vince Mcmahon's father was not impressed and chose not to hire him. He worked throughout the country until finally getting hired by the WWF in the early 70's and becoming Chief Jay Strongbow.


Back to the topic of Allentown, the Pro Wrestling World store has moved to Vultee St. in the Merchants Square Mall in Allentown. They will have a free show on Januray 9th with ocal legend, Mongoose headlining.

That right there kinda sux b/c it's misrepresentation in a way. There may have been native americans that were proud of Strongbow only to find out he's not even that. They stretch things too much in my opinion,although sometimes people like Stone Cold Steve Austin are pretty much who they are except more exaggerated.

Wahoo Mcdaniel may have been one of the only true Native Americans in wrestling. Chief Billy White Wolf was from Iraq originally and became Sheik Adnan El Kaissey in the AWA.

I think Tatanka may have been native american also. There's a website I sometimes go to that gives the names and real nationalities of wrestlers...intriguing.

Default If u meant Tanaka???

Professor Toru Tanaka from Japan??If so him and Mr Fujii were actually Hawaians.. WOW! Another disappointment for me.. Out of the 2 of them Fujii actually had the most japanese heritage.. But not very much.. Tanak's mother was a tad japanese.. Very very little.. They both grew up in Hawaii! And again to think i believed all this..
