Re: G.George,Thez,Hogan,Austin-4 men with most impact on pro-wrestling?
Andre definately deserves the mention, he was the first person to be a global attraction in the sport of pro wrestling and helped it transition from a national sport to an international one, also being the first wrestler to appear in a film and a houshold name. It was also his idea for it to be on tv.
Wrestling was mainstream even during 1950s.
