As one of the original hardcore icons, Abdullah the Butcher became a star on various continents and winning more titles internationally than many casual fans may have realized. He was violent, shocking and scary and did it all without uttering a single word. Abdullah was not just a brawler with foreign objects; as he could wrestle where needed and had underappreciated ring psychology. He is a recent inductee to the WWE Hall of Fame despite having never competed there. Considering his iconic status, it is not a complete shock.
