Not really.  My dad never worked for Stu Hart.  I have met Bret and Owen they were both very nice.  I just read Brest's book though, it's one of the better wrestling books out there.

i know/knew most of the Harts. Bret still trains at my gym to this day. (actually i don't know about today because i am in Scottsdale at the Barrett Jackson auction). but he is a current member.

My man if you only knew.  My dad met him when Murdoch was real young. My dad had just moved to Amarillo and was wrestling for the Funks.  He was driving down the road one day and saw some kid with 2 bear cubs on chains.   My dad had to pull over and talk to him.  That was the start of their friend ship.  They were Best friend up till the day Dickie died.  The only time I have ever seen my old man upset by the way.

VON ERICHS ,were all the main draw of world class,built around kerry,when he became texas tornado and wwf ,wrestling fans probably heard of him but he was not 100 pct accepted ,great build tho.same for lex luger aka the narcissist good character but luger of course a fictional name in itself was not a character based wrestler or gimmick his body was his selling point to sucess,they figured a pampered nickname narcissist was good name ,but to me vince likes to 'gay'up wrestlers like adrian adonis,the model rick martel,golddust .


Since I was a low end jobber, I didn't really need a gimmick.  The name Venom Vince Versace was only used to signify me as a heel to the audience.  The only thing I had to do was to put someone over and get the crowd worked up.  Usually calling them a bunch of rednecks who lost the war usually gets them riled up


Quite frankly most gimmicks were done by the workers themselves.  McMahon didn't have much part in it

for a avatar like that hell ya I do Grin

Back in like 03 or so  my dad was doing a autograph show in Arlington Link was there.  My dads table was next to Killer Tim Brooks cause they are good friends and like to fuck with each other all the time.  Brooks was leaning over the table signing a pic for someone when Link walked up with this heavy yellow chair he carried with him every where.  My dad said hey Dewy go hit Brooks with that chair.  Well the dumb bastered did it.  He hit Brooks twice right in the back of the neck.  Well Brooks had this big chain on the table it used to be part of his gimmick. He picked it up and went after Link he backed him up against this wall and started choking Link with the chain.  The whole time Link was head butting Brooks .  Once Brooks got Link to his knees he let go of him.  Link picked up his glued on hair piece and left shortly after.   My mom snapped a few bad pics of the whole thing If I ever get my scanner working I will post them.  Every one thought they were working but they were not. Kamala was there too by the way. 
  Link and I became pretty good friends the next time he was in town and I sent him up ti Metroflex at 65 he was still big as shit.

I have been meaning to tell this for a while but just have not had the chance.

 A few months after Kerry Von Erich killed him self Bob Orton Sr. ( Randy's Grandfather) and his wife came to visit us from Vegas. While he was in town he wanted to go see Fritz. So me my brother  my dad and Bob went out to Fritz's ranch.  This would be the first time my dad and Fritz had spoken since Davids death.  We are there and the visit is going well till Fritz and Bob started arguing about something I was only about 10 or 11 I can't remember what.  Fritz got so mad he told Orton   "wait right here you SOB I'm going to get my gun"   I remind you Kerry had recently killed himself. Orton said in his old raspy voice  "is it the same fucking gun you killed your kid with?"  My dad told me and my brother go get in the car and we left.
 
Kerry Von Eric had a sick build in the eighties. Any pics of him kicking around?

Karl, I used to see your dad when I was growing up, watching wrestling in Florida on TV with Gordon Solie. I used to go sometimes to the the live matches at the West Palm Beach Auditorium. I saw your dad wrestle Dusty Rhodes. Hey, do you have any Superstar Billy Graham stories?

Not really.  My old man and Eddie Graham were close.  He used to fly my parents and Dusty and his wife around on his privet plan.  Solie is defiantly the best announcer in my opinion

Boy, I never saw anyone juice their forehead with a blade as much as Rhodes. Every wresting magazine used to have a bloody face pic of Rhodes.
