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.

I believe you mean Bob Geigel. Mr. Geigel is an old friend of my family's, great guy. Been to a couple of Chiefs games back in the 90's with him.

yep; I used to watch Wrestlemania on Saturday nights after Saturday Night Live I think.

used to love it as a kid.
it's probably revisionist of me, but it seems like back then it wasn't nearly as retarded/over the top as it is now.

I think you are right. The 60's & 70's should be the classical age.

At that time, beside the Vietnam War, there was no other issue that could label right vs wrong as good as the pro wrestling did. Every time a heel won, the booing from the fans was just loud and loud. Then when the righteous triumphed, the applause was thundering. As a kid, I just ate everything up then.

We should all change our names to wrestlers and act like them when we post. That would be fun.
