I started buying wrestling magazines in '84. At the time in Chicago, we were only getting AWA, WWF and World Class on tv. So, there was an entire universe of wrestling that I had no idea about. Reading the Apter mags at the time, I thought Mosca Jr was bigger than life, and then they just suddenly stopped talking about him. He didn't quite get the Luger or Bigelow push, but it was pretty epic.

The magic of those wrestling magazines back then. They built them up so well you looked forward to seeing them in person if you hadn't.

100%  I thought Mosca Jr. was great because the Apter mags made it seem that way & he was a champion, so he must be great, right?

Big Ang and his PWI t-shirt at the first Starrcade is a long-standing memory.  All the undercard guys seemed to be dressing formally after their matches, but that burnt orange color on a 4XL frame leaves a burn mark on the brain.
