JunkYard Dog


Son of Liberty
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.

I love the old school wrestlers. I remember that he had a long chain wrapped around his neck. I did not know that he died in a car accident.
