Black History Month - February 16

February 16 - Junkyard Dog
People loooooooooooooved JYD. Talk about charisma, few had it more than Junkyard Dog. If you can get your hands on an unedited copy of the first WrestleMania, watching the crowd EXPLODE for JYD while Queen's "Another One Bites the Dust" plays is one of the coolest entrances in wrestling history. Few guys had entrance music at that event, just Hogan, Wendi Richter (who came to the ring with Cyndi Lauper) and JYD. It's odd that something so simple, that we take for granted now, would say something about his legacy, but it does.

Oh wow, I found it!
