Gorgeous George Pro wrestling's first superstar was George Wagner, better known in the world of grappling thespians as Gorgeous George. His shtick was designed to outrage conservative-minded Americans of the 1950s. George was quick to realize it didn't matter if the patrons bought tickets to cheer him or jeer him--as long as they bought tickets. With Pomp and Circumstance as his entrance music, George would often climb into the ring clad in effeminate robes, his long hair pinned back with gold bobby pins. His valet would spray George's corner with perfume and his opponent with disinfectant. Gorgeous George was a TV icon in the early 1950s. His appearances on the tube often scored higher ratings than Milton Berle. Muhammad Ali cited Gorgeous George as the inspiration for his braggadocio. George retired from wrestling in November 1962. He died of a heart attack just 13 months year later, on December 26, 1963. He was only 48 years old.

Womens Roller Derby 1952 Here's about five minutes of the New York Chiefs skating against the Jersey Jolters in 1952. Roller derby is another fine, upstanding sport--much like pro wrestling.

Hulk Hogan SI Cover Pro wrestling may have hit its pinnacle in 1985 when grappling thespian Hulk Hogan was featured on the cover of the April 29 edition of Sports Illustrated. It generated letters to the editor for several weeks, equally pro and con. One rasslin' fan wrote, 'With low ticket prices, no offseason, no trades, no contract disputes...pro wrestling is true sports entertainment!' A contrary opinion was offered by another SI reader who wrote, 'For you to even think of pro wrestlers as athletes is ridiculous, let alone put one of those marshmallows on the cover. Come on!'

Jesse Ventura 1998 Campaign Ad In 1998 former wrestling villain Jesse (The Body) Ventura ran for governor of Minnesota. He wasn't exactly a political newcomer. Ventura had been elected mayor of Brooklyn Park, MN in 1991 and served until 1995. However, nobody gave Ventura much of a chance to win the gubernatorial election--but he did, despite only spending about $300,000 on his election campaign. Here's one of Ventura's low-budget camapign commercials that made him the 'governing body' of Minnesota.

Canada Wins Gold Medal Time out for a little personal patriotic pride: Canada finally won its first Olympic gold medal today at the 2008 Beijing Olympics! It was won by 48-kilogram female freestyle wrestler Carol Huynh. She is the daughter of Vietnamese refugees who came to Canada in 1978. With the help of a church in Hazelton, British Columbia (population 1,500), the Huynhs managed to raise Carol and four other children. Carol's parents and husband were in attendance when she won her gold medal. Here's a CBC News clip of the happy event.

Paul Orndorff Another treat for Naomi: Wrestler Paul (Mr. Wonderful) Orndorff, at his vicious best, laying a beating on Max Blue around 1986. Orndorff does his full repertoire: He clotheslines his hapless opponent, finishes him off with a pile driver, pins him, and arrogantly tosses sweat on him! You gotta love it!
