237.  “Outlaw” Ron Bass

Many mean Texas cowboys have populated the world of professional wrestling.  Chances are fans of the WWF of the late 80’s, may remember “The Outlaw” Ron Bass who was one of the few heels in the large promotion to go without a manager at a time when even the best heel talkers were accompanied to the ring by somebody.  Bass played the ornery cowboy gimmick perfectly and with solid wrestling skills, a thick frame and a vicious snarl he didn’t need anyone doing his talking for him.  Like other “cowboys” on this list, Bass may find himself well behind others who wore the same “hat” that he did.
