JunkYard Dog

I see threads like this made about wrestlers sometimes and I wanted to go a little old school and ask people's opinion about the JunkYard Dog, one of my favorite wrestlers of all time.

He had a great gimmick, he would come into the ring with a dog collar and his music was Queen's "Another One Bites the Dust". He was a great face and would bring kids into the ring after wins to dance with him.

He and Mr. Wrestling #2 were a great tag team and they had some great matches with Ted Dibiase and Hacksaw Jim Duggan.

Unfortunately he passed away in 1998 when he was involved in a single car crash.

Anyone else remember JYD and what were your thoughts of him?

I remember him, I always liked him, I used to really enjoy watching him get on all fours and charge at someone laying down and headbutting them three or four times, it just seemed like such a strange move.

I did not know that he had passed away.

Yeah, I remember that, he used to headbutt people and bark like a dog. He had a really good gimmick.

What made me laugh most of the time was how whenever he'd headbutt them on the ground while on all fours, the wrestlers on the receiving end would sell that move in such a funny way lol.

JYD...gotta love it.

I think he was one of the more underrated performers in the WWE...

Most memorable match of his for me was his match with harley race at wrestlemania 3...

Same here. I knew he died, but not from an accident.

He had a pretty cool gimmick as well, and the theme song didn't hurt him either hehe.
