A gentle giant who had many stories told about him, some true some ,well ....
While many remember his convertible, some remember hearing he only drank milk and was criticized, or some focus on his death.
I like to look at his career as all of these, kinda like a folk hero.
A true tough man, he like to boast his large chest and plaid shirt.
He did wrestle in the WWA and was also famous if you will for having part of his ear torn of by Killer Kowalski.
This is why I say his career was made of up of many components, and sad that some were not good.
I think the best part is too remember him and not be stuck on any one portion, because to do so really doesn't show the whole picture.
To truly enjoy his talents, put together the whole package.
He died in January 1965, but not his legacy.
