True Story

Back in the day there was a short lived wrestling promotion here in Cali, they did have a TV. They had a few"name" guy but mostly  "Wildman" Jack Armstrong. Steve Strong...???  One of the  "name" was Professor Taru Tanaka, he'd come out with the Goldfinger  theme,  yep, playing him up as Oddjob.....but he wasn't.

What would you like to know? Just a list of names, or is there any discussion to be had?

Hollywood: Wrestlers in the business long enough have the opportunity to get picked up in other acting roles.

Football: Athletes that don't cut it in the pros have a good base for becoming a pro wrestler.

Also, you can join us in the wrasslethread instead of post a new topic if you want more focused discussion.

You did fine.

I didn't want to have this get in the way of more serious talk in the wrestling thread.

The Swedish Angel and Tor Johnson have always intrigued me.

I thought Crush replaced Ax as opposed to a threesome.
From the wiki: he was added as cover for Bill Eadie (Ax) who was getting sick a lot due to an allergy.  Vince was worried that Ax might be out a long time.  Eventually Ax moved into more of a managerial role and less of a pure wrestling role.

Ax and Smash won the titles from Andre & Haku but during this reign were allowed to have any two defend the titles.  As has been said, the norm became Smash and Crush, with Ax sometimes getting involved.  A good example was their SNME match vs the Rockers.

I can see you are on that ELITE level, so trying to stump you won;t be easy.  I can't just toss out what I would to the norm.
