#9 Undeniable presence in a 1977 interview

Bruiser Brody
Bruiser Brody

At six and a half feet tall, and rippling with muscle, Bruiser Brody could walk the walk of professional wrestling.

But he could also talk the talk, and despite his angry demeanour was quite articulate and on-point with his promos. Bruiser Brody used his interview time to tell a story, get himself and his opponent over, and set the stage for big matches. And all of this without scripts, or prompting from a production assistant!

Here's a great interview with Brody from early in his career. You can tell he's emotionally invested in his character and angle, and even has time to give props to his friend and tag partner, Stan Hansen.
