I was convinced Billy was going to beat Verne at the Comiskey Park card in 1974. I was wrong.

So was I. They built Robinson up so much you couldn't believe anything else.

Dick the Bruiser was a guy I knew wasn't going to win any of the major titles even though he received several shots at the AWA and NWA titles. Even a WWF challenge against Graham in St. Louis.
