Legendary manager in World Class Championship Wrestling & the UWF. Surprised he never got a WWF run, especially since a lot of the World Class guys got snatched up by the Fed.

Sad to hear this, especially with Gary Hart gone also. Most of WCCW is gone now but man in their heyday they rocked like nobody's business. Devestation Inc. was one of the best factions of all time and was gold with Akbar at the helm and people like Foley doing the dirty work, not to mention when they would join forces with Hart and run roughshod over the faces.

WWE did a DVD on WCCW that I recommend for the matches and the promos, but the best DVD about it is Heroes of World Class. I think I have a second copy around here somewhere if anyone wants it, I'll look for it later. Maybe we can make it a contest or something. WCCW needs to live on instead of just being tapes in the WWE vault. Come on guys, think of a cool contest. (Sorry, got carried away. I just love WCCW since it was pretty much my "home promotion" living a state away)

I've seen both the World Class movies and they are both very good.

WWE used to make some really good documentaries, but it doesn't seem like they do too many of them anymore. Hopefully they can finally acquire the UWF video library and make one for that league too.

Really enjoyed his time in World Class and Mid-South.
Those were the days.
