147. Red Bastien
Red Bastien was one of the better natural athletes of his day and according to his peers was one of the most pure talents. Bastien would win multiple championships across the country and bring merriment to every locker room he was in. Bastien’s travels also brought him to the WWWF in the 60’s and was featured on Madison Square Garden cards. Bastien had a very good career, and was a highly regarded tag team wrestler but likely is not enough on the WWE radar to really make him a candidate with a decent shot.
