270.  The Missing Link

For many years, Dewey Robertson was employed as a wrestler who while was technically sound was somewhat nondescript.  In his mid 40’s, Robertson completely reinvented himself as “The Missing Link”.  This new character was as bizarre as they came, as the bulk of his offensive move set was ramming his head into his opponent.  He had a full page spread in Sports Illustrated and though his WWE run was only a few months, it was a memorable one.  Robertson continued the Link persona into successful World Class and UWF stints.  One can only wonder what Dewey Robertson’s career would have been like if he would become the Missing Link five years earlier.
