Ok old heads. How many of you out there in Blogland remember this guy? Heh? That’s right, today’s Firstin retro moment brings you the “GRAND WIZARD of WRESTLING”. Does it get any better than this or what? This guy is from the old days of the WWF. Back then Vince McMahon was the ring announcer. The Grand Wizard was the manager for classic stars such as Sgt.. Slaughter (remember the Cobra Clutch?) and Superstar Billy Graham. Those were the days of Saturday afternoons filled with wrestling and Kung-Fu theater. Nothing could beat a stoic Vince McMahon trying to act like he was interviewing some Olympic Tri-Athlete. Then the Wizard would come out and start ranting and raving how his guy was going to make mincemeat of the opponent this coming Friday night at the Toledo Bowling Alley or whatever venue would have them. “Let me tell you something McMahon…” It was camp theater all the way. It was a much more innocent time, but it was five times the fun. CaptainAmerica
