I dont mean the original, Lonnie Mayne but the guys who spent a good deal of their career in Memphis, with runs both as pushed talent and job guys in the WWWF/WWF.

A pair of guys wearing overalls, no shoes with hobo beards and uncut hair who made guttural noises but never spoke and carried around large bones that they would use as both a snack and a weapon.

Were they hillbillies who went feral? Maybe some sort of unfrozen cavemen?

The 1969 album 'Moondog' is one of my favourites ever.

So how did we go from Moondog Mayne to all the other Moondogs? Who was the 2nd one? Did they just steal the name after his untimely death or did he actually team with one before he passed?

By the way, this is from Wiki (re-emphasizing what Kriss said with more detail):

Lonnie's famous nickname "Moondog" was acquired from Vince McMahon Sr., as he supposedly looked like a famed blind musician and poet named Louis Hardin who lived in New York until the early ’70s and was many times seen on the corner of 53rd or 54th Street and 6th Avenue in Manhattan, in a cloak while wearing a Viking helmet.
