I saw him in Omaha years ago. In fact, his debut match there was against the recently departed Bob Windham. Big ol' lanky fella, but the fans loved him in the ring.

Big Tex was not great, by any means, in the ring, but he was a personable babyface. Tex had some big feuds with The Sheik and Bulldog Brower. Apter mags showed him juicing frequently.

I liked when Cheap Seats used an old IWA promo of him and another wrestler. When the announcer moved on from Tex, he wanted to put his hands in his pockets, only the pants he wore had none. The Sklar brothers caught it and quipped "hands in the pockets....nope! Guess it hands on the hips, then!". Which is exactly how Ted covered for it.

He probably sucked every single day he was in the wrestling business, so I wonder who else was so crap around the time he debuted. It's kinda easy to guess that some 7,4 Russian in 1905 Moscow was the drizzling shits (yes, freak gimmicks are that old) but McKenzie was not really a freak.... of course I've also seen clippings with a "Big" moniker for some 6,0 guy in the early 30s...

So yeah, I wonder if he is the earliest instance of a somewhat legitimate wrestler with a long career who was the drizzling shits.

I have Los Angeles results with McKenzie going back to 1959. Even then he appeared at the top of the card. Kriss mentioned Hank James and as I'm sure as he knows better than anybody, James became famous solely due to the Apter mags posting gore stained pictures of James taking on Dory Sr. and Terry in Amarillo in a cavalcade of Death Matches and Chain Matches.

Perhaps the worst matches ever seen.


Great era though and in the 1970s you could get by on interviews and personality.

Tex was awful. Clumsy. Uncoordinated. Could barely get through the ropes without falling.

McKenzie was already wrestling for those Texas/Kansas outlaws in 1953, but I am unsure when Hank James debuted. It might have been 15 years later, who knows.
