360. Buddy Landel

Two Nature Boys in Professional Wrestling seems like a lot, but three seems like overkill.  The third “Nature Boy” was Buddy Landel, who was a talented wrestler who struggled to escape mid card status.  Occasionally, promoters would let his talent prevail and trust him to headline cards and grant him championships, but Landel was deemed unreliable overall and despite his great skill set, he was difficult to trust.  Landel did make the WWE as part of a talent exchange with SMW, but his time there is hardly indicative of a Hall of Fame career.
