#2 ‘Wild Bull’ Curry

Bull Curry was hardcore before it became a catchphrase

The originator of the hardcore style of wrestling, Bull Curry terrorised the various territories of the NWA in the 1950s and 60s. The man was so ferocious that he sparked all-out riots in multiple arenas when he performed, punched multiple fans who tried to attack him and was even arrested for using a cinder block on an opponent.

Curry, who got his nickname from subduing a wild bull during his days as a policeman, was so unruly that the NWA bookers refused to put the NWA Heavyweight title on him despite Curry being the most entertaining figure in Texas that time.

No matter, a compromise was forged and Curry was allowed to win a new title – the NWA Brass Knuckles Championship – created specifically for him owing to his penchant for using brass knucks in the ring.
