so long ago . now they have much bigger men . specialist of strongman contests

It was a long time Ago
The difference and what made the very first WSM the best is that all the contestant were well known Star's that the public all knew. Now the shows are just guys that nobody hardly knows. Yes there big and strong and most aren't even American. I for one want a strongman I've heard of, one that has some fame. Not a want to be. After all its TV. Guess you had to be there.

Of course it was over-publicized! He was a pro-wrestler at the time, and this was great publicity for him and Saito. By the time his sentence was to be served, he was working in the WWF. Vince McMahon loves any kind of publicity, and upon Patera's return, WWF released a special video on Ken and gave him a huge push.

Unfortunately, he ruptured a bicipital tendon soon thereafter and was kind of shelved. He left after several months of serving as enhancement talent to other up and comers.

Let's not forget he didn't go to jail for breaking a window. He went to jail for beating the crap out of two police officers and there dog. It was never proven that he broke the window. He never did get that Big Mac.

He beat the dog, too? I'm assuming a German Shepard? Damn!

You're right about the window. Ken maintains that a disgruntled employee did that. I just find it funny that, with everything else that happened, he and Saito were bickering over a thrown rock.

This was me spotting Big Kenny P. at the WSM 1977 right at the finish line.
At least he didn't brake his leg.

The phrase, "Break a leg," is good luck to everyone else.

Yea
But let's not forget that Poor Franco did end up with almost a Million Bucks.
That makes poor Franco NOT SO POOR.

Could Be.
Ken normally was a very strong lifter.
In this contest it wasn't how strong of a lifter you were, it was a combo of things of strength. Bruce (at the time) was the stronger man overall. Kenny sadly had a shoulder injury at this show and that hindered him on a lot of the events. He did his best not to let that stop him but the fact is it did to some extent. If Kenny was 1000% he might have won, but most likely not and here's why.
Event 1  Bruce 1st Ken 4th
Event 2. Bruce 4th Ken ?
Event 3. Bruce ? Ken 4th
Event 4. Bruce 1st Ken 2nd
Event 5. Bruce ?  Ken 1st
Event 6. Bruce 1st Ken 3rd
Event 7. Bruce 4th Ken ?
Event 8. Bruce 4th Ken ?
Event 9. Bruce 1st Ken 4th
Event 10. Bruce 1st Ken 3rd.
Bottom Line. Out of 10 events Bruce had 5-1st place wins. Ken only had 1.
Despite that he only won 1 event Kenny still ended up in the top four and Third place overall.
That is pretty good considering.
Ken was one of the nicest guys there.
I enjoyed helping him through each event.

I just heard Ken speak at a wrestling legends convention. I was amazed at how humble and friendly he sounded. He may just really have it in for McDonald's! Grin
