Wahoo and Kiniski MLG 1982

Love this pic of Wahoo McDaniel and Gene Kiniski in front of the 'wall' at MLG in June 1982.
These two went way back together to Wahoo's early days as a wrestler. Gene started first but they had both turned pro after football careers.

At this time in Toronto Gene was a bad guy while Wahoo was a fan favorite. Wahoo took on Sgt Slaughter (U.S. champ , Slaughter's title not on line) while big Gene took on Angelo Mosca in a Texas Death Match for Mosca's Canadian Title. Wahoo won, Kiniski didn't.
