    all of the Flair/Steamboat matches are on dvd. Track them down, worth every nickle.

I remember seeing guys like Chief Jay Strongbow, Blackjack Mulligan, Greg Valentine (another baby face), and Dusty Rhodes.
    I haven't followed wrestling in ages but I loved Mid-Atlantic Wrestling (it had other names under the Jim Crockett Promotions umbrella) when I was a kid. The guys you mentioned above, along with Jay Youngblood, Wahoo McDaniel, Baron von Raschke, Iron Sheik are some that I remember. It was pretty low-budget back then but lots of fun.

    Two years later, a fantastic read:

    http://bleacherreport.com/articles/1...cho-man-savage

    In fact, Randy was planning a rare public appearance. In 1989, he’d been a guest announcer on a Cincinnati Reds radio broadcast and remembered the experience fondly—especially the moment when he stood up and did a muscle shot for the crowd and center fielder Eric Davis stepped out of the dugout and gave the Macho Man the same pose. When Lanny met Reds first baseman Joey Votto at a charity event, the incident came up, and the 2010 National League MVP invited Randy to a June 2011 game against the Tampa Bay Rays at Tropicana Field. Among the incentives: VIP batting practice privileges.

    Randy agreed to go. But he died five weeks before the game.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I've since moved on from "wrastlin'", but I was into it when the Macho Man and Leapin' Lanny were first starting in the business back at the Armory behind Bluegrass Field in Lexington. Saw Randy break a large mirror over his head one night, with real blood pouring down his face afterwards. The guy was nuts, but funny.

    I follow Iron Sheik on Twitter and he made reference to the death anniversary today which was kinda cool. I remember hearing the news while away in Nashville for a concert.
