This week, we explore a man with a life like almost no other. He received a Purple Heart from WWII, was a champion wrestler, all over the country, then did what any war hero, pro wrestler does... become an enforcer & bodyguard for the Columbo crime family. He particular exploits were insane, beating a murder conspiracy rap, and it all led to a lucky break, and him playing one of the most memorable parts, in "The Godfather", and more!!

Valiantly help defeat Hitler, have your leg broken by Verne Gagne, and get a film role because your boss threatened a Hollywood director with Lenny Montana!!

Check us out, every Tuesday!

We will continue to bring you the biggest idiots in sports history!!
