    I thought he was a riot in "The Ed Wood Story" playing the part of another late wrestler Tor Johnson.

    Grew up watching him. I was stunned to learn he was a former teacher and had a masters degree (I recall he was a math guy but could be wrong). He was dyslexic who found his way in the world.

    I still remember when his wrestling persona developed a crush on Miss Elizabeth. OMG! He could act with the best of them.

    RIP Mr. Steele, and thanks for the great memories!

    I remember hearing that as a kid in the 80's.

    The best wrestling back then was the Texas stuff with the Von Erichs. Some of those guys legit hated each other. I remember a guy taunting taunting him about being high when he climbed into the ring. ( Gino Hernandez ?) Asking him if he was high and what was wrong with his eyes. LOL

    I know pro wrestling is fake as shit but some of those matches resulted in serious injury. Check #3...

    Wasn't it played up that he was in love with Miss Elizabeth.
