A reminder of how lame Red Berry was. He momentarily forgets Bull Ramos' name.

Typical Bruno promo of that era.

Here's another one that's a little more colorful:

Red Berry was lame if that's a typical promo. Can't say that all the old guys were better.:)

For some reason, they assigned him all the Bruno challengers in the 1968-69 timeframe, and his rap was one size fits all. It was the same thing all the time, "We're going to pulverize, paralyze, terrorize, demoralize...."

He managed Hans Mortier, Monsoon and Bull Ramos in the same year.

For some reason I remember him having Prof Tanaka as well?

You could be right. The first one I remember him managing was Mortier in late 1967.

Wow.  Im usually all about standing up for the vintage stuff but thats the first promo I ever actually saw of Berry. Kills all the good I had heard over the years. That was just average at best. Bruno was good though. LOoked classy never saw  a Bruno promo in a suit

That era (rougly 1967-1970) was the weakest for the WWWF in their history.  Bruno's challengers (with a few exceptions) were mid carders at best: Bull Ramos, Hans Mortier, The Kentucky Butcher, etc.  The managers also took a dive in quality.  Gone was Bobby Davis and in his place...Homer O'Dell and Red Berry.

When Berry first moved into managing from wrestling, he had the Fabulous Kangaroos (Costello and Heffernan version), in the 1950's.  At that time, his schtick was fresh and innovative.  By 1968, Berry and his mic work were simply old.

Speaking of Pittsburgh, the video from the Oct. 16 reunion has been posted. It's in nine parts. This is part one:

The other parts should pop up in the list. The guys are interviewed mostly in parts 1 and 8.
