I'd like to know if any of those comments are a work. Sarge is from that "kayfabe-til the death" generation. I'm sure there's some truth, but also some embellishment.

Dick Beyer would go into public places with his Destroyer mask on - especially in Japan. He would carry the thing with him while tanning outdoors in case someone would walk by. But, it wasn't as if many/any folks would recognize him.

Verne Gagne convinced him to unmask in a gimmick match. Verne thought it would make a great angle, and Dick thought it would hurt his career. Both were wrong. After removing the mask, the audience was silent because nobody knew who the hell Dick Beyer was.

Last I heard, Dick hosts a radio show somewhere...and yes, he wears his mask...on the radio...

Man that is fucking awesome. Damn, I wish I could have caught some of those old matches from the 50s - 70s!

I suspect the old man compensated Andre very well for those jobs.

Well, in all fairness to VKM... and I'm not really a fan of his. Tully got nailed by some drug policy and Arn ended up going down with him.

Sucks too... I loved Blanchard as the TV champ back in the day.
