The title above refers to the wrestler known professionally as “Deuce”, in 2007, Mr. Jimmy Reiher, Jr. (1971). As he is mostly retired now, his name came up on a post related to my book…his father, Jimmy “Superfly” Snuka, is more of a wrestling superstar than he is and I have the elder’s autograph. His almost twenty years in the business, notwithstanding, “Deuce” has held a couple of minor league titles and even Tag Team champion on two occasions.
As he has not been as famous as his father, I just wanted people to know just how much useless knowledge I have in my head. Besides, I need to save some names, as this is the first time I’ve posted in September 1…and it won’t be the last.
Also, celebrating today are/were; late author of “Tarzan” and “John Carter” books, Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875-1950), late actress Yvonne De Carlo (1922-2007), late pugilist Rocky Marciano (1923-1969), late singer Boxcar Willie (1931-1999), late country legend Conway Twitty (1933-1993), actress Lily Tomlin (1939) and surviving Bee Gees’ member Barry Gibb was born in 1946.
TV personality Phil McGraw (1950), late wrestler Rocco Rock (1953-2002), author/motivational speaker Billy Blanks (1955), pop diva icon Gloria Estefan (1957), sportscaster Danny Mayne (1959), late wrestler Bam Bam Bigelow (1961-2007), former basketball star Tim Hardway (1966), wrestler Doug Williams (1972) and “Ridiculousness” co-star Chanel West Coast (1988) finish today’s list.
Thank you all for a near-record August…hoping September is better…
