It was about two years ago that I had the pleasure of interviewing, Brian Blair, known mostly to wrestling fans as one half of the 1980’s World Wrestling Federation tag team, The Killer Bees.  It seemed only fitting that I made an attempt to talk to his tag team partner, “Jumpin” Jim Brunzell.

Like Brian, Jim Brunzell accomplished far more in professional wrestling than just what people saw in the late 80’s under Vince McMahon’s juggernaut of a promotion.  A former football player for the Minnesota Golden Gophers, Brunzell would star in the American Wrestling Association for years as both a tag team wrestler and solo competitor and was known for his scientific mat wrestling skills and likable personality.
