    Very impressive list!

    Johnny Valentine was a notoriously disgusting ribber back in the day, used to defecate in the shoes of his colleagues, smear feces in hard-to-find spots in a room and urinate in hotel ice machines, among other exploits. Infamously put lighter fluid in Jay York's inhaler, leading "The Alaskan" to pull out a firearm in the locker room before the situation was diffused.

    I used to worship the Von Erichs and the Funks. They were Texas heroes.

    Not a Texas guy, but if I had a time machine, the Sportatorium in 1983 would make the top 5. I actually met Kevin at a convention in L.A. four years back, came across as a very humble and genuine guy. There's lots of Von Erichs stuff in the Macho thread a few weeks back, @wife is a whore & I had a friendly back-and-forth about Fritz's legacy, you'll get a kick.

    Coolest guy associated with wrestling I've ever met was Jimmy Hart. Dude was cool as shit and just talked forever. He was with Hogan at an event.

    I walked into (the late) Barbary Coast around 2001 and had to do a double take when I saw Virgil nonchalantly shooting craps. No sign or gimmick table, just dice.

    Oh yeah, I met Lance Russell at a show last month and caught him out in the lobby and marked out for like 10 minutes.

    And I hit Bret Hart with my dip spit cup at a WCW house show and he flipped me off.

    Wow! Jimmy Hart (guy in the middle of Brothers Funk) - met him several times.
    I guess you guys know he was in the 1960s band The Gentrys, right? "Keep On Dancing"?
