    What ever happened to these wrestlers?

    Yeah, guys like, KOKO B. WARE, Bad News Brown, the Brooklyn Brawler, the Natural Butch REEd, The Big Boss Man, Akeem, Hacksaw Jim DUgan (2 by 4),
    there are others i can't remeber names but i do remember Rick the Model Martel, what about Hercules (the original chain gang), most of these guys are mid 80's through late early 90's wrestlers (circa 87-91). Wrestlers that came after that, i don't know of cause i started losing interst in wrestling as a teenager and pick up on sports like basketball and football. if you do remeber someone i did not name go ahead and bring him up, just don't bring up the Honky tonk man and Greg the Hammer Valentine.

    Bossman, aka Ray traylor,passed on last year of a massive heartattack in his sleep.

    KOKO B Ware is still around, he does occasional indy shows.

    Brooklyn Brawler is still around, he's mostly used in WWE as the guy who woirks with alot of the enhancement guys& also backstage.

    Butch Reed is still around, retired and i think lives in Fla.

    Akeem, aka One man gang, is still around. Does indy shows and is semi retired.

    Hacksaw Jim Duggan works indy shows as well, and I believe lives in GA.

    Hercules, aka Hercules Hernandez, passed a few years back, I want to say 2001 from heart failure.

    Last I heard Bad News Brown was training wrestlers in Stu Hart's dungeon. I read an interview some time back where he said he left wrestling because he didn't get any respect.

    I can vouch for "One Man Gang". He is alive and well and living in Baton Rouge. I haven't met the man, but I know his wife quite well. She is a member of my Mardi Gras Krewe.
