That's why I liked him! And he's still around!

Quote:
Lawrence Robert "Larry" Shreve[1] (born January 11, 1941[1]) best known as Abdullah the Butcher, and also at times The Madman from the Sudan, is a semi-retired Canadian professional wrestler known as one of the most brutal or "hardcore" professional wrestlers of all-time.

The scars on his forehead are the result of frequent blading. According to Mick Foley, Shreve used to put gambling chips into the deep divots in his head to entertain (or scare) people at casinos.

An amateur martial artist, Shreve also has knowledge of judo and karate, often including this knowledge in his professional wrestling matches. This knowledge was mainly displayed by him using judo style throws, and karate chops.

As part of his training regime he used to eat raw chickens with the feathers still attached...

n addition to his hardcore style, his dietary habits have also become infamous in the wrestling world.[citation needed] He has been shown to eat announcers' ties, whole raw fish, he once even appeared to bite the head off a live chicken before a shocked crowd.[citation needed] Abdullah's appearances on the NWA's Georgia Championship Wrestling television broadcasts frequently highlighted his gustatory mayhem. While on camera he was shown eating reams of paper, cardboard boxes, the announcer's script, and even half of Gordon Solie's microphone.[citation needed] Prior to a match with local favorite Bob Armstrong he ate an entire live toad in front of Armstrong and his son as an act of intimidation.[citation needed] His unpredictable, ultra-violent style served as inspiration for other wrestlers, including “Maniac” Mark Lewin, Kevin Sullivan, Cactus Jack, Kamala, and Sabu, among others; and he still continues to compete on the independent circuit in a career that has now spanned five decades.

I do remember that guy. Have you ever seen the Iron Shiek's Twitter? Don't if you're easily offended. It's definitely not boring.

The iron sheik has quite the mouth on him. Very opinionated too. He hasn't changed much since the 80's, at least not in public.
Magic is like Science,
Both are fun if you do it right!

WWE is going through a tough time right now. It cycles bad on them.

Ultimate Warrior: One-Third Of WrestleMania VI Competitors Now Dead

http://www.thepostgame.com/blog/list/201......ferral#1

"The pinnacle of the Warrior's career was WrestleMania VI on April 1, 1990, at SkyDome in Toronto. Warrior defeated Hulk Hogan in the main event to win the championship. Warrior is the 12th wrestler who competed at WrestleMania VI to have died -- one-third of the card's working roster. The oldest was just 63.

As a point of reference, of the 44 starting players from that year's Super Bowl between the 49ers and Broncos, only one has died: Denver defensive end Ron Holmes, who was 48 when he passed away in 2011 from diabetes and coronary issues."

Professional Wrestling sounds like one tough career choice!
