My wrestling fandom ended when I was about 12, that would have put the cutoff at around 1983 or '84. Not exactly sure what it was that turned me away, at one time, I was fully invested. As much as a 9, 10, or 11-year-old can be "fully invested". I had the magazines and watched wrestling on our local channels. For the national broadcasts, it was TBS when there were like a dozen people in the crowd, and "Mean Gene" Okerlund was announcing with something called the AWA (All-American Wrestling).

You could say that I am totally old school when it comes to pro wrestling. Just off the top of my head, I can remember "Bulldog" Bob Brown (John C. Reily clone), Junkyard Dog, "Superfly" Jimmy Snuka, CoCo Beware, Andre The Giant, "The American Dream" Dusty Rhodes, The Great Kabuki, and the reason I remember, is because I saw them all live in action a long, long time ago. Here's a pic of "The American Dream" giving the "Bulldog" the business.

When I looked up wrestlers from the '70s and '80s, some very familiar names popped up like Killer Kowalski, Superstar Billy Graham, Terry Funk, The Iron Sheik, Bruiser Brody, Abdullah The Butcher, King Kong Bundy, Ted DiBiase, Hacksaw Jim Duggan, Arn Anderson, and Ernie "The Big Cat" Ladd, who was an All-Pro defensive tackle for the 1971 Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs. Below is "Superstar" Billy Graham circa 1980-something.

We could go on all day reminiscing and getting all nostalgic about all the great wrestlers we have memories of. Because of this revelation of Stamford essentially being the central location of the biggest professional wrestling "league" on the planet, It made me wonder how many wrestlers from Connecticut made it into the pro ranks. We found 10 right off the bat that I am sure most of you will recognize and have fond memories of.
