I wasn't aware Abby could even grow hair, he really took his Abdullah Cosplay full force for a long time.

He no longer look like a demented baby zero stars would not recommend.

1. Its amazing that Stan Hansen stayed employed with that company as long as he did based on those rules. 
 

2. Someone in Japan needs to call that number and see who answers.

I haven't seen a couple display less romantic chemistry since Ellen DeGeneres and Bill Pullman starred in the hilariously named Mr. Wrong.

Maryse and Ted Dibiase, Jr say hello.  Can't believe they thought that was a good idea since it was clear Ted wanted nothing to do with it.

Was this Bruno's car he had shipped to Baba?

Most likely, but the interior picture is of a Cadillac but in the other pic Baba is standing next to a Lincoln Continental. Bruno did send him one of his old cars when he upgraded to a Rolls, not sure if he shipped him a Caddy or Lincoln.

Meltz said it was the Caddy in his obit at the time of Baba's passing.

McMahon Sr's top star and world champion, Sammartino, out of loyalty and his friendship to Baba, refused to work for New Japan which led to bitter disagreements with Sr., and it wasn't until Bob Backlund got the WWWF title that McMahon Sr. was able to send his world champion to work for New Japan. In 1973, Sammartino, seeing the huge Baba squirming to get out of his small car (in Japan, they didn't have big cars in those days because they didn't have big people, except for Baba and the heavy sumos, that would have needed them), gave Baba one of his old Cadillacs that he wasn't using as a gift. It cost Sammartino $3,000 to ship it to Japan, and Baba repaid him the money on the next tour. This past week Sammartino remarked to the Japanese press that if Baba's business had during that period ever hit rock bottom, that he'd have gone to Japan and worked for him for free to help rebuild it, noting that he is the only promoter that he ever dealt with in his career that he would say that about. When Sammartino retired from wrestling the first time (he made a comeback more than three years later during the first WWF boom period), his final match was in All Japan on October 9, 1981, teaming with Baba going to a double count out with Tiger Jeet Singh & Umanosuke Ueda.
