Lots of talk on the blog today about Fritz Von Erich and where he ranks among the most despiciable individuals in wrestling history. This got me wondering who you’d place on Mount Rushmore of Scumbags in wrestling.
I dunno for sure, but Herb Abrams died of a massive heart attack while high on coke and covered in baby oil and chasing a hooker around his hotel room with a baseball bat, so that’s gotta count for something.
Also, Wrestling With Wregret did a video about UWF recently, and it turns out that the Steve Ray-Dr. Death "shoot" was actually a work the whole time, at least according to Ray. They apparently decided together to work stiffer and try to generate some buzz about the match. There was no broken nose, either.
