legendary pro wrestler in the 60s and 70s. Probably never used an actual wrestling hold his whole career. Mostly just pummelled opponests with his fist, also liked to throw them out of the ring and bash their head on the timekeeper's table. Other nicknmaes included "The Psychopath," "The Missing Link," and "The Most Dangerous Man Alive." Built like a fireplug at about 5'7" 240 lbs. Died of a heart attack while doing bench presses at home in 1991. Real name William Afflis.
Dick the Bruiser went from villain to fan favorite in St. Louis when he got into a feud with Black Jack Lanza.
