He would've been 61 today. An awesome article I've never read before from May of this year. Sheds a lot of light on the whole HOF thing.

That was great... and how about the back of Randy's baseball card - improved his swing by dropping the elbow.

26 Years ago today

1987 - WWF holds a "Legend's Battle Royal" at the Meadowlands Arena in East Rutherford, New Jersey. It's interesting to note that, at the time, WWF rarely acknowledged other wrestling organizations or their history, yet this match contained many stars that achieved their fame outside the WWF. 72-year-old Lou Thesz won the match, outlasting Nick Bockwinkel, Art Thomas, Bobo Brazil, Jay Strongbow, Gino Brito, Arnold Skaaland, Eduardo Carpentier, Baron Scicluna, Al Costello, Pat O'Connor, The Crusher, Pedro Morales, Dominic DeNucci, Killer Kowalski, Tony Garea, Gene Kiniski, and Rene Goulet.

Ray Stevens was also entered in this match, so that makes 19 men... is there another missing that made this bout a 20-man match?   I used to have a copy of this on tape, as it was recorded by a local TV station, and had they had several post-match locker room interviews with some of the guys.  Al Costello recited poetry with great eloquence in his segment, and Kiniski was a bombastic sort who stood out on the mic as well.

Nice to see Macho Man's wife tell that he and Hogan made up - Hogan said it and nobody believed him and got really pissed at him right after Savage died.

Eduardo Miguel Perez did 2 legends Battle Royals for Vince, but I don't know if it was this one.
