But it seems to be some form of dementia. Probably that he got from, you know, too many bouncing the heads off of the the apron. Concussions will do that to you. He was one of the great villains of the eighties wrestling world when, when wrestling was in its heyday with Hawk Hogan and, uh, Andre the giant. He was in the first WrestleMania.
