393. The Warlord

The Warlord was one of the greatest physical specimens in the history of professional wrestling in terms of strength.  He was not overly mobile or technically gifted but when you tried to imagine what a wrestler would like in the late 80’sand early 90’s it was The Warlord that you imagined.

His greatest matches took place when he was teaming with The Barbarian in the NWA and WWF, but this was a man who at one time challenged Hulk Hogan for the World Wrestling Federation Title at house shows.
