Forgotten Legends21: Mouth of the South

Do we need an elaborate introduction to the mouth of the south? You would have seen him if you were a fan of Hulk Hogan, Bret Hart, Jim Neidhart, Jerry Lawler, Ted Dibiase, Honky Tonk Man, King Kong Bundy, Rick Rude, Randy Savage, Iron Sheik, Kevin Sullivan, Kamala, Austin Idol, Greg Valentine, Funks, Rougeau Brothers, Earthquake, Nasty Boys and he is most remembered for "Sexy Boy" composition for Shawn Michaels and NWO's Wolfpac music.

Having managed a huge list of wrestlers acting as their voice to draw heat for them and using his trademark Megaphone as a foreign object on their behalf, he was as colorful as any of them could ever get. Having been inducted into WWF/WCW hall of fame he also held AWA southern heavyweight title once.

Re: Forgotten Legends21: Mouth of the South

Honestly those who only remember Hart for his megaphones, entrance themes, and colorful jackets missed the best of Jimmy Hart.

Hart got into the business when Jerry Lawler who went to the same high school asked Hart to do a song for him. Hart had recorded a gold record with his band The Gentry's "Keep on Dancing".

Anyways Hart was best in the CWA (USWA) as leader of the first family, where he was unchained by the restrictions of the WWF. He could say what he wanted and was just at the top of his game then. I remember one interview that Lance Russell did at a "First Family" picnic promoting a series of dream matches. With Hart then was Kevin Sullivan, The Nighmares, and Wayne Ferris (Honkeytonk Man) it was hilarious and except Hart you could tell they were all drunk off their butts. In Memphis he did not have to play second fiddle to Hennan. When I would see him in the WWF it was almost sad in comparrison. He was the man and managed an army of wreslters.

He has almost a legendary line up of wrestlers whom he managed. All of them made it to the top and that sounds like more than coincidence and his ability to compose entrances was exemplified with Sexy Boy+NWO Wolfpack. Besides, he is best know for Hart Foundation.
