    Didn't Stacy Keibler wrestle at one time? I'll pick her. If she'll just stop by and show me a few of her moves I'll be glad to show her my world famous lip lock. :)

    And Cindy Lauper and don't forget Chyna (I think that's it). I know it's wrong but I think I could do alright in the ring. No matter WHAT happened...:D

    Only watch wrestling once every four years. Greco-Roman thank you very much.

    I've got to say, I haven't watched wrestling since I was 5 or 6 years old. Around '61 or '62.

    I'm sure was under the age of ten. It was the golden age of professional wrestling with the likes of Gorgeous George!

    In the mid 60's in Milwaukee we had Dick the Bruiser, da Crusher (Milwauke''s son), Vern Gagne, and later Baron von Rashke (the Clawmaster), Mad Dog and Killer Vashon, Dusty Rhodes, Billy Superstar Graham, and a few others I can't remember.

    Later came Hulk Hogan and Andre the Giant, but my interest in wrasslin' faded about then.

    In my senior year at HS (about '70), our school concert band played some kind of gig that featured Gorgeous George. It was kind of an exhibition wrestling event. GG was getting on in years then, but still had the moves as I recall.

    Sometime in the mid-80's my band was playing a gig at some downtown hotel in Milwaukee, and we decided to get a quick bite in the restaurant first. We were seated at a table when lo and behold Andre the Giant came in with some guy (his manager perhaps) and walked right by our table. I'm here to tell you that guy was freaking enormous!

    They sat at a table near ours, and in due course the waiter brought out a huge platter of what probably were Chimichangas, still spluttering from the kitchen. It looked to be at least a double order, and he polished that off with a full bottle of red wine. We later learned he had a bout just across the street that evening. Also later read that the hotel had to special order an oversize bed for him!

    In the late 50s-early 60s in Baltimore, it was Bruno Samartino, Bobo Brazil, Argentina Apollo, and Golden Boy Arnold Skoland.

    I believe I saw Gorgeous George wrestle Victor the bear, my dad was the PR guy for a local radio station and would take us to events. I swear I went to see (and meet) him but I can't find any pictures (most of which are long gone now). I am sure it happened though, I can clearly picture him in his robe/cape and recall him being very nice. I also remember Victor, he was huge and smelled funky. I'm not sure exactly when it was, late 60's or early 70's. It's also entirely possible I saw GG and Victor at different time and events. I know I saw both though, and am pretty sure it was the same event.

    I've posted too many times already to this but wanted to acknowledge 2 more not listed yet .
    Kurt hennig, Mr Perfect, was a great ring general and drew tremendous heat from the fans. Died way too young, shows the sickness of pro wrestling.
    Lou Thesz, old time great, NWA champ, legit wrestler, I have a copy of his autobiography manuscript somewhere. Found him in early days of Internet on an aol chat room.

    Haven't watched since I was in high school. I always liked Baron Von Raschke. Not necessarily his wrestling but when he did the interview bit and would warn his next opponent would face... DA CLAW!
    Always the dramatic pause before and always held up his right hand in "the claw", while holding on with his left as if it was a separate part of him where he had little control.

    Mind you, that was back in the days before wrestling was fake.
