That was awesome! Great find, made me feel like a 9 year old kid again!
RIP Animal, you were a great character.

One hairy dude. Hogan was a terrible wrestler no moves at all
Hogans one great move was his ability to channel all his mystical inner strength, to become momentarily impervious to all other attacks. That and the leg sweep, i believe.
But this thread isnt about Hogan, its about the Animal, who i believe was an old, old time wrestler, he wrestled back when my Dad was a kid even. He came up through the ranks of the American Wrestling Association, with the likes of Rick Flair and Dusty Rhodes.
That was the 70's when the wrestlers used to keep razor blades in their trunks, and literally cut themselves during the matches, for effect. There used to be quite a bit of bloodshed in the matches in those days. Was a pretty theatrical display. Those dudes were hardcore, was a very "carney" lifestyle for those guys, back in the old times.
