    Bob Backlund

    Do any of you guys remember this wrestler? When I was a kid he used to live in my town. I met him a few times. We were heavily into wrestling back then. It was guys like Jimmy the Superfly Snuka, the Strongbow brothers, Andre the giant and Bob Backlund.

    It was great to meet him. He had a small carpentry business and my friends father invited him over a few times.

    Bob Backlund:
    Robert Louis Backlund (born August 14, 1949)[3][4] is an American retired professional wrestler with an in-ring career spanning over 30 years, best known for his tenures in the World Wide Wrestling Federation/World Wrestling Federation (WWWF/WWF, later known as World Wrestling Entertainment and currently simply known as WWE), where he is a two-time WWWF/WWF Heavyweight Champion/WWF World Heavyweight Champion (Backlund's first reign is the second-longest reign in the title history, behind Bruno Sammartino's first), as well as being inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2013.

    Any of you guys remember him and some of the other wrestlers from the good old days?26ee44fdb1995884c8e08774baecc8d7 1fef74e84864f9c7d3a93b870efd2de6e 1

    I don't know Bob Backlund but I do know Andre the Giant. Also, just to name a few other wrestlers from the old days: The Undertaker, his brother Kane, The Big Show, Rick Flair, Eddie Guerrero RIP, Triple H, Sean Michaels, Booker T, Kurt Angle who is stil active, The Rock, in no particular order and the list could go on and on. I have to say, there were some really great wrestlers back in the day, REAL entertainers.

    I met some of those guys as a kid. I remember touching Andre the Giant and Jimmy Superfly Snuka as they walked by. They did matches right at the highschool back then. Andre the Giant was the most enormous person I've ever seen. He towered over everyone. I'll never forget those guys.

    I hope I get to meet even if it is just one of the greats before my time. The WWE superstars need to do a worldwide tour, to at least give their fans an opportunity to watch them live. That would really make me happy.

    Unfortunately, I have never met any wrestler old or new. It would be cool meet if I met John Cena or Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, who Hollywood hotshots.

    The truth is wrestlers like Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson, John Cena and Dave Bautista have put in a ton of work and they have truly earned their success.

    Now, that is the truth right there.

    Oh! I forgot about Dave Bautista. He has managed to maneuver in Hollywood really well.
