|Like The Road Warriors and Rick Rude, The Terminators were Minnesota guys who were trained by Eddie Sharkey that wound up getting a break in Georgia. Unlike their predecessors, The Terminators didn't make it. The one who talked was Krull (the spelling could be wrong). The other one was Riggs. They were mainstays of Eddie's indy group based in the Twin Cities, Pro Wrestling America, which is where Jerry Lynn, The Lightning Kid, Larry Cameron, Ricky Rice, Derrick Dukes, Savannah Jack, Charlie Norris, and Jeff Warner (JW Storm) worked before getting shots at the big time and semi big time to different extents.
At some point Krull wound up going to prison for reasons I don't recall, so Riggs was paired with Wolf as The Terminators. The late Ray Whebbe on one of his radio or public access TV shows noted that Krull was a legit badass who was not to be crossed. The second version of the team was together much longer and got brought to an AWA TV taping in Las Vegas and were put over, but didn't get brought back. Wolf was really tall. There is a match with him and Nord The Barbarian on YouTube and they're about even for height, but he was a bad worker and was one of those guys who did nothing but upper body at the gym, so he had toothpick legs that not even long tights, kneepads, and higher cut boots could hide.
