I bumped the thread over there. Thesz was good at what he did and I can appreciate his ability. He was tailor made to be champ during the era where kayfabe was alive and wrestling was presented as a serious sport.  The guy bored me to tears though. He had absolutely zero charisma, guess he didn't need it as he had that aura I guess.  Rocco may well have been the first famous spot monkey, but which of those two do you think would be a star with their moves and look today? Rocca would by far in my opinion. Not that that means much considering wrestling does suck now.  Like I said I give Thesz his props for being solid in the ring but I don't go out of my way to watch his matches. I grew up with Midsouth, Crockett, South Eastern/Continental, Florida, and Georgia way before I got to see any WWF or AWA. I loved how those promotions presented wrestling as legit, but had some more color and it wasn't just about exchanging holds and chain wrestling.  I can respect that in a match, but I enjoyed the angles and promos just as much.  Still the little correspondence I had with Lou, he seemed friendlier than many who had been in the biz. He was gracious and answered my questions in a cordial manner.

Did you talk to him before his eyesight failed?

His wife Charlie used to read the questions to him near the end and type the answers under his name, when he felt like answering them, because his eyesight was going/gone. Some of his end stuff was probably just her talking for him.

No big deal, just sayin'.

Terry Funk said TheZ was the shits because he was legit tough and when he felt like it, he'd make the local headliners look like shit and hurt the gates for weeks after he left.


Funny sideline.  When Scott was doing Funks book, I tried to talk the two of them into using the THEZ vs Thesz spelling when referring to him in his book.  After we explained the reason to Funk, he was happier than shit and wanted to go for it.  I guess Scott decided not to do it on the final print.

Thats a shoot.

He probably wouldn't like you as he hated the Road Warriors. Which is fine but he loved to put that in his posts at KM every chance he got for awhile. He was annoying as hell with it. He posts as Pete the Pup over there. I'm sure you had a sparring session or two with him.

Very knowledgeable guy. His posts in this thread trump anything he ever posted at KM. He should of shared this kind of info there.

I actually think Schaumburg Stew and Pete The Pup are different guys. They both post at a Chicago wrestling board. Let me do some digging and find that board.

It did seem odd that he shared so much info on here and never did on KM despite going back to the Marigold days. It makes sense if they are different posters.

Well Pete the Pup probably ascribes to the Schire school of the Road Warriors were worse than the devil.
