But the people who took the strap off Ric couldn't draw as much as The Nature Boy so he got the strap back quick. Not bad for a guy whose best move is a chest chop and a whoooooo. Or how during a promo he could get the entire crowd into it and say whoooooo when he did, with a massive horsemen following that would dress up in suits and sit in the crowd. "Space Mountain" "The Limo Riding Jet Flying...." "To Be the Man, You got to Beat the Man" Tons more....So I don't understand how anyone can say his promos were weak and only said "whoooo?" They're legendary.
He wasn't a muscle bound freak of nature, but he was what everybody strives to be today in this industry.
