Speaking of Big John Studd, where(territory) and when(month/year) did John Minton/Chuck O'Connor begin using the name of Big John Studd?
Also I saw some screencaps of the WWF tapings of 'Wrestling At The Chase' over at KM the other day and in the ones with Studd there was a blond haired manager type in a suit that was with Studd when he came to the ring. Who was that?
It didn't really look like Bobby Heenan, but I suppose it could have been.

Wasn't Heenan. Mangon Maganoff

Oh okay, thanks. I see there is a thread going on right now about him over at KM. I haven't read it yet, so now I'll have to I guess.

Never knew that Who was Jim Neidhart when he wrestling.

On a similar theme, I didn't pick Zip as Tom Pritchard.

I did know that DiBiase's Undertaker was not The Undertaker and correctly predicted their Summerslam match when he first appeared. Didn't realise that Chainz was the same guy until much later.

As obvious as it is now I had no idea as a kid that Smash and Repo Man were the same person. Not until I read an apter mag that mentioned it for the buildup of Summerslam 1992. Also Papa Shango being the Godfather.

Didn't realize Matt Borne was Doink.

Best change of that sort of persona was Dustin Rhodes -> Goldust.

You could show me any Doink today, and I would have no idea who was behind the paint.

Dewey Robertson into Missing Link flew right over my head.

Does nobody having a clue that The Sensational Intelligent Destroyer and Dr. X were the same guy count in this?

Yeah I didn't realize it was him until I heard about it on Cody Boyns' free weekly pro wrestling phone hotline.
I learned a lot of 'inside smark stuff' from that Cody Boynes hotline back in the early to mid 90's. The best part is that it was totally free. In the yellow pages the phone company had this local free number you phoned and then you typed in a four digit code to get whatever type of info you were looking for. They had one for the weather, another for sports scores, another for NFL news, regular news, NHL, soap opera updates, horoscopes, quizs that you played over the phone, etc, etc, etc. They were all pre-recorded messages. I remember my best friend at the time phoning me up one day to tell me that they added a pro wrestling update done by Cody Boynes(who was based out of T.O. at the time I believe)every week. I'm sure the local phone companies across the country paid a fee to him to carry his hotline as part of their yellow book info hotlines. He used to credit the Observer and The Torch as his sources. It was great as that was the first time I had been exposed to any backstage info as I never subscribed to any of the sheets...Why bother when I got the condensed version of the two biggest ones at the time for free every week from Cody.
Didn't anyone else in Canada, particularly the Toronto area remember Cody's updates?
I grew up in Halifax and they had his hotline there, so he may have been available all across Canada and the States too.

Anyway, we take you back to our regularly scheduled programing about the "Men Behind The Masks" now. :)

Really???
Are you legit with that or just fibbing?
I would have figured that as soon as he opened his mouth and spoke everyone would have Goldust figured out. It's that lisp IMO that outs him as coming from the loins of Stardust himself.

Back in the day, it was harder for me to figure out gimmick changes and masked wrestlers because I didn't subscribe to newsletters and there wasn't the internet to tell you the truth. The only wrestling mag that sorta broke kayfabe was Wrestling Eye.

I think Big John Studd starting using that name in Dallas.

I don't know who the best at the mask thing was, but I couldn't figure out Golddust or Razor Ramon either.
