Its too bad he never got a real shot in WWF thanks to that god awful Brawl for All, but still part of one of my favorite tag teams with Terry Gordy, the Miracle Violence Connection

That guy was BADASS. If I remember right, didn't he have stitches in his eye many years ago...a LOT of them, no less...and he still wrestled?

R.I.P. Doc.

Had Doc had the committment in the early years of his career, (he was exhausting all of his football options before he really too wrestling seriously including a stint in the USFL that the Apter mags laughed at him for,) he could have been bigger than Bruiser Brody and landed a nice fat contract working for Vince or Crockett. He had all the tools to be the bridge between Brody/Hansen/Funk and Mick Foley as his Japan years proved.

Unfortunately it meant that no major company would take a chance on him since the guys I mentioned and Abby the Butcher simply couldn't be tied down and were always on the move. He had a great run in Japan and nobody can take that away from him. The downside is the same as Hansen and to a lesser extent Terry Funk and that is that American fans never saw his best.

R.I.P. Steve, you were one of the good ones.
