Rod BrindAmour
An intense workout machine whose gym work likely granted him twenty NHL seasons, Rod Brind’Amour was not just a physical anomaly, but one hell of a hockey player.


Although Brind’Amour showcased offensive prowess (1,184 career points) it was his defensive skills that opponents feared. As one of the top shut down centers in hockey, Brind’Amour twice won the Selke Trophy for the league’s best Defensive Forward.

    When James Harris adopted the gimmick of a “Ugandan Headhunter”, he stumbled upon one of most bizarre yet memorable personas in wrestling history.  With his painted face and stomach, Kamala was a large savage who looked like he could destroy anybody and then eat them for dinner. The Kamala character was perfect for the territory system.  He was brought in…
