    Awesome. Been watching the AWA on ESPN lately and i'v been wanting some Old School wrestling.

    Col. DeBeers is from the Portland area right? Big fan of that guy.
    I'd rather have nothing than have a lie.

    Found this one and thought it was Raven doing color commentary and then read where it was him.He sure has changed his look in 20 years.

    Yeah that was him.He used to come to town with the Portland crew and wrestle here quite alot when he was starting out.He was one of the nicer guys as far as bull shitting with you during other matches.My Dad had a small tavern that they would go have beers at after the match and I met a few of them there.Lord Jonathon Boyd of the Fabulous Kangaroos was the one I remember the best,prolly cause he was crazy and I loved listening to him talk. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jonathan_Boyd
