Cowboy Bob Orton is wrestling right now.

I kid you not.

Turn on Smackdown on UPN to see this old-timer wrestle The Undertaker.

Some people should just retire and stay retired, like Orton and others. (*cough*Ric Flair*cough*)

7. As a little kid, I remember dick the bulldog browser, T-Bolt Patterson,
Erik the Red (who had a pet bone), Mil Mascaras, Bruno San Martino, Thunderbolt Patterson, Chief Jay Strongbow, Dino Bravo and Gino Brito AKA the Italian connection,Professor Fuji Tanaka.... and don't forget the one of a kind country boy Haystacks Calhoun. And there was midget wrestling... Sky Lo Lo comes to mind. I must have been about seven.

12. I saw many of the greats wrestle in the old days
Dick The Bruiser


The Crusher (Dick's cousin)

Blackjack Lanza


Wilber Snyder (the last proponent of "scientific wrestling")


Baron Von Rashke


and many others from that era.

My brother used to take me to the matches every friday evening. It was heaven.

11. i wasn't certain they were actuaLLy reLated
after aLL, so many grappLers were supposedLy reLated in story Lines.

remember, 'cowboy tony funk' (a bLack man)? he was reLated to terry & dory funk at one time.

or how about the 'dudLeys'?

'shane dougLas' used to be 'troy (not positive on the first name) orndoff' who was the (son?) of mr. wonderfuL.

14. I understand where you're coming from.
But yeah, according to many sources, Bob and Randy are both related.
