  • Doing a simple search, Stu only won 1 title, twice, the NWA Northwest Tag Team Championship. So it may be him.

    Comment


    • It is not Stu.

      5) I did work with the NWA, AWA and WWWF.

        • Running out of ideas, short of looking shit up. Judo Gene, maybe?

          • Neither.

            Hint: my third clue is a little misleading.

            • Is it Buddy Rogers?

              • It is not, but I feel like you're getting much closer.

                  • No.

                    6) I was close to the bench press world record held by one of my friends, but have never actually broke it.

                    • See now I am confused a little. Hackenschmidt was a World Record Holder in the bench press for 18 years waaay back in the day, and he was one of the first major professional wrestlers that is what a lot of the later wrestlers were based on.

                      I am so lost on who this is.

                      • Sammartino also held the record at one point.

                        • This particular wrestler never actually held it, it's just well known that he was very close.

                          1) I created the template for pro wrestlers
                          2) I trained with a film legend
                          3) My one title reign would technically be considered a regional Championship
                          4) I ushered in a new belt without winning it.
                          5) I did work with the NWA, AWA and WWWF.

                          • I was looking up friends of Bruno, but I just can't figure it out. This is too far into wrestling history for my knowledge. The "ushered in a new title" made me thing DiBiasi and Pat Patterson, but they obviously don't fit the other clues. So I'm stumped.

                            • It's "Superstar" Billy Graham.
                              1. Not only was a directly ripped off by Jesse Ventura and Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair has sighted him as an influence, and he basically created the template for the bleach blonde bodybuilder professional wrestler that came to dominate the wrestling world. There's touches of him in Warrior, Sting, and guys right up to the bleach blonde, flamboyant Dolph Ziggler today. If you saw a wrestler with a bleach blonde mullet covered in baby oil in the 90s, they were cribbing from Hogan who cribbed from Graham.
                              2. In his earlier days he was a training partner of Arnold Schwarzenegger.
                              3. He had one major title run with the WWWF Heavyweight Championship at a time when the WWWF had re-joined as an NWA affiliate so, technically speaking, the WWWF Heavyweight Championship would be a regional title on par with the other territories' top titles. This was the one that was a little misleading.
                              4. He destroyed Bob Backlund's title belt (with his bare hands!) ushering in the creation of the green belt that Hogan won from Sheik.
                              5. He worked with those three companies.
                              6. Pretty trivial, but at the same time he was training with Arnold, he was also training with Pat Casey, the world's first major powerlifting star. Casey held the world bench press record of 616-lbs. Officially, Graham never broke the record as his highest official press was 605-lbs.

                              I'll toss it up to whomever wants it.

                              EDIT: This one particular pick is basically a cross section of all my major interests.

                              • I picked a name randomly by rolling dice, so these clues aren't great.

                                1 - I'm mostly known for being in teams and stables, essentially the sidekick. My singles pushes famously never panned out.
                                2 - Patriarch of a wrestling family
                                3 - Despite working for pretty much every relevant wrestling promotion, I've only won titles in 1 of them.
