So he wasn't the best worker ever but I loved the gimmick and he played it very well. First I saw of him was late 70's, early 80's on GCW.

I'll give you a good 'Abdullah' match. He wrestles Mil Mascaras and damn near gets the mask off! From Japan, probably around 1980.


I also liked the look where he wore a black hood.



Would have liked to have seen him and Kamala as a tag team!

Very early in Abdullah's career, there was a Wrestling Revue article where he attacked a photographer. Great article that helped get him over as a crazy man from a faraway land.

I just watched some New Japan matches with Abby against Fujinami and Inoki that were quite good.

They did team up in montreal once against Rick Martel and Austin Idol. Only the end was even shown on tv, as Kamala and Abby ended up breaking up and brawling.

Always thought it was gross how it looked like he was growing mold underneath his fat rolls.

I loved him. He was scary and had a great gimmick. Sure he sucked in the ring, but he played the part he was supposed to.
