Dick the Bruiser.

My first exposure was as a young lad staying up late night at a friend's house and watching a black and white UHF channel. We tuned in just as Dick the Bruiser came to the rescue in a tag team match. I never got interested in "professional" wrestling, but my boyhood memories of things like this are vivid.

During the mid-'70s, my dad would sometimes watch the wrestling on Saturday night on a low-powered independent TV station out of Nebraska that we could pick up with the antenna. Yes, it was as fake as it ever has been (probably more), and I can't remember a single wrestler's name, just one that always had a mask on his face.
What I DO remember was a product that was always advertised. This company always sponsored the wrestling and just about every commercial was for this product: I would have loved to see a chemical analysis of this product.

During the early 1970's going to the downtown Arena in Cleveland: Chief White Owl and Ox Baker with his "Heart Punch" were my favorites.

I have met Greg Gagne on a business transaction. He is selling Jaguars at a local dealership.

Also, got to meet the world's strongest man, Ken Patera. Great guy.

I grew up watching Jessie the body Ventura, Bobby The Weasel Heenan, Nick Bockwinkel, The Barron, Verne Gagne, Kenny sodbuster Jay and George Scrap Iron Gadaski. The announcer was Mean Gene Okerlund. That was some great entertainment.

Somehow it was better on UHF. Blurry black and white. Had to adjust the antenna just so. Remember him?
