The golden age of wrestling
 
Reading this article about George "the Animal" Steele brought back all those fond memories, Ricky Steamboat, Jesse Ventura, Dick the Bruiser, the Iron Sheik...etc.

"Wrestling is a make believe business, and the stars are never truly in control of their own success." ~ Jim Myers, a.k.a. George "the Animal" Steele

I didn't know until now, George Steele's day job is a high school teacher.

Golden Age was in the mid-late 80's.


The late 90's had a great run, too.
