Personal Quote:

[in the ring as "Gorgeous George" being checked by the referee] Take your filthy hands off me!


"Gorgeous George" became so famous that, in the early days of television-- when most families didn't have one--stores would place a television in their window display tuned to the station running professional wrestling. Groups of people would gather outside these stores to watch the programs. See more »
