The Shadow.  I believe this was when he was going around the country with his protege Mark Ragin and working undercard matches against him.

This interview really needs some Rikidozan stories.  Destroyer was involved in a 6-man that ended up being Rikidozan's final match--he was stabbed a day or two later.  Would be interested in Rikidozan's demeanor before that and what happened to the JWA in the immediate aftermath.

I had no idea that Beyer trained Mark Ragin.

I'd like to know about his two-week run as AWA champ between Verne Gagne title reigns. What was the purpose of this? How was he approached when he was told he'd get the belt? Did he know it would be a short reign? Did being a former AWA champion have any kind of effect on the rest of his career? Do we need the AWA, and why?

Ask Beyer if he has any good stories about the early days when Dick the Bruiser and he were roommates for awhile in Chicago.

Have to ask him about All Japan days.  Memories of Baba and Jumbo.

What did he think of Misawa?  what did he think when Baba died and Misawa formed Noah?

what is his reaction to Misawa's recent death?

Why did the papers say his name was Bruce Marshall when he was unmasked in Milwaukee, when he was announced as Dick Beyer in the Twin Cities?

Any reason why the Dr. X unmaskings were split between Jack Lanza and Paul Diamond?


What process went into selecting Jim Osborne as his tag team partner, Double X?

What was his favorite city in the AWA?

Was he, as the story goes, legit pissed at Steve Yohe for revealing his shootname in Yohe's Destroyer record book because the Destroyer was never unmasked?



edited for an afterthought







 These.
