Once upon a time there was an Annual Apter Mag Article the was titled something like How Jay Youngblood saved Ricky Steamboat's Life.  Because it was an annual I'm not sure of the actual timeline, but as a kid it always confused me.



It was about Buddy Rogers wanting to manage Steamboat and how he sent Ricky pictures of a bunch of questionable holds and moves used to cripple people.   If Steamboat would have signed with Rogers he'd be a vicious savage like Jimmy Snuka.

As luck would have it, right before he made a decision Jay Youngblood asked Steamboat to be his tag partner.  Ricky said yes to Jay and that saved him from Rogers.


My question is did Buddy manage Snuka somewhere besides the WWF?  Is this a kayfabe deal that Rogers was trying to bring Steamboat into the WWF?  If so why would the Apter Mag portray Snuka and Rogers as devious and dirty since they were both working face at the time?

Mid Atlantic area, if memory serves around late 1979 and maybe into 1980 before Gene Anderson took over for Buddy.

Even though both Buddy and Snuka were in MACW at the same time, I don't remember Buddy managing him and I've always had an interest in Rogers career.

He managed both Snuka and Big John Studd for a short time, with Snuka being the main guy.Interestingly enough, Snukas finisher at the time was some grade school stuff that they called the "Fijian brain buster", where Snuka put a guy in a rear chin lock then made a fistextending his middle knuckle and giving the guy a noogie in the temple.
Rogers time with Snuka was relatively short lived, there was a brief feud with Tim Woods, won by Snuka, then Snuka vs Flair become red hot.
Then came the battles of the Nature Boys and Flair "ran Rogers out of town" and Gene Anderson took over as his manager.

There was an Apter Mag article during that JCP run about Buddy Rogers using hypnosis as a tool to guiding his charges to the top.
