I started off with Mad Dog Vachon in 1966.

2. Crusher

3. Wilbur Snyder

4. Killer Kowalski

then Verne won the belt

1. Billy Robinson

2. Dr. X

3. Bill Watts

4. Lou Thesz

I never ever thought that Bockwinkel would become champ but he did. His top challengers in Chicago were

2. Dick the Bruiser

3. Billy Robinson

4. Ernie Ladd

1. Nick Bockwinkel
