I showed Bundy Greg Valentine's GWF card at a show in Nebraska, told him about the game when he asked, then later we got Legends of Wrestling and I hear that Bundy sought Tom out and just wanted to be "better than Greg Valentine"...

Legendary Buffalo pro wrestler Dick 'The Destroyer' Beyer dies at 88
Legendary professional wrestler and Buffalo native Dick "Destroyer" Beyer died Thursday at his home in Akron, his son Kurt wrote on Facebook.
Beyer, whose career spanned nearly 40 years and included nearly 8,000 matches in the United States and Japan, was 88.
In a Facebook post, Kurt wrote, "It is with a very heavy heart to let you know that Dad — aka the Destroyer, aka Doctor X, aka Dick Beyer, aka Coach — passed away shortly past noon today. He was in bed at home, and was surrounded by all of his children and wife as he slipped peacefully away. I will have more to share later, but wanted you to hear this sad news from me first. Thoughts and prayers are most welcome at this time. Peace."
Beyer wrestled under his given name and without a mask when he began in 1954, but he gained worldwide fame when the "Destroyer" was born in 1962. He also worked as "Doctor X" in the Minnesota-based American Wrestling Association from 1996 to 1972 and won the AWA world championship. He also wrestled for All Japan, becoming the first American wrestler to sign with a Japanese company, and the American Wrestling Alliance among other promotions.
Beyer is regarded by many as the greatest masked professional wrestler of all time and was a four-time world champion, among many other titles.
After he retired from his wrestling career in 1993, Beyer became a fixture in Akron as a high school swim coach and for making charitable donations and helping fundraising for youth sports in the area.
Beyer was a four-sport star at Seneca Vocational and earned a football scholarship to Syracuse University, where he would co-captain the Orange Bowl team in 1952 and remained as an assistant coach, including with the Jim Brown-led national championship team in 1959.
