Good grief all the fans that got past the guard rail in WCW in those days. Didn't see that happening in ECW or WWF at the time. Atlas Security would rough you up and no one wanted to try WWF's guy.

Dellinger always came across as the Rosco P. Coltrane of wrestling security to me.

I think Bret Hart mentions that everyone used to rob Dillinger when he dozed off.

I always heard that Dillinger was kind of incompetent.

Bret was concerned that his ring jackets kept getting stolen because Dillinger was an incompetent boob.

I was always surprised that Dellinger was never replaced when WCW took off during the Monday Night Wars.  He was a holdover from the regional days and Bischoff didn't exactly have much loyalty to those guys.  And as plain to see by this thread, Dellinger wasn't exactly irreplaceable as head of security.  He was probably making more money than he should've too.  You'd think just for the visual, Bischoff would've went with someone younger and jacked since that position wound up on TV so much. 

Back in the day, I remember Grizzly Smith would be standing around some of the studio or Saturday Night tapings with a walkie-talkie, looking fairly old and in a suit, but just a fucking giant of a man who looked like he would crush you if you attempted any funny business.
