I want to get the ball rolling on the next feature. I had nothing to do with writing or reviewing this article, but it's an interesting deviation from what the portal has done so far. I vaguely recall this wrestler from my youth, but don't think he was all that important. Still, he's a pure North Carolina product in a popular field of entertainment, and would be a lighthearted relief from colleges, parks, and history. I think it likely needs a thorough comb-through, since the GA reviewer was apparently also a wrestling fan, but overall it appears well-written. - Cdtew (talk) 16:29, 15 February 2013 (UTC)
