Hey Beer, I'm fine - but I've had a hectic last few months - and I'm back on dial-up, so I haven't had the time to participate here. But I have been lurking from time to time. I couldn't resist jumping over the ropes and into the ring on this one, though ...

(Guy, by the way - I know it's hard to tell with this villainous mask ... )

Bobo Brazil vs The Sheik - the ultimate battle of good vs evil. Of course, through some vile trickery, The Sheik was declared winner, but you knew that Bobo would be back ...

Has there ever been a "heel" wrestler who defeated his foes (or at least deterred them) by having overwhelmingly bad body odor? I should think that would be quite a marketable way of annoying the fans and creating controversy.

My brother-in-law worked at a small town tv station when Vern Gagne was sponsoring their wrestling with nutritional supplements that he was marketing. Gagne would show up sometimes and direct the "wrestling" action from off camera.

Fond memories of Nana Sullivan screaming "Kill 'em!" at the B&W with the tiny screen and the huge cabinet. I loved Gorgeous George complete with mirror. Who was the small (by comparison) Hispanic wrestler who jumped and flipped and out-manouvered all the others? He was usually a good guy. I don't think he was BoBo Brazil, but maybe.
I even remember Midget Wrestling. And Roller Derby on TV.

Maybe Argentine Apollo - 5'10; 175# sounds about right.

AWA Tag Team in 59!
Those were the days.
His son ran for Mayor of Buffalo in 09.
