Inspired by the Mad Max movies, Lord Humongous became a Southeastern Wrestling personality in the mid-80's
Growing up, my Uncle Ronald didn't greet me with a handshake or hug but with a wrestling move called the, "iron claw". I still remember that huge hand coming down on my skull like a giant thunderclap and shaking me down to the ground. Such was the popularity of wrestling in Mobile that it permeated all aspects of my young life.
By the time I was eight, I had as many hours of wrestling under my belt as I did bike riding or baseball. Sure, Saturday mornings were for cartoons, but Saturday afternoons were for watching Southeastern Championship wrestling on WKRG.
