nextprevbut-fe.gif (5991 bytes)

Wahoo McDaniel's in-ring career is truly legendary. As Tully Blanchard says, "Some guys could draw money in their little area... But Wahoo McDaniel was a star everywhere he went."

What fans didn't see was his generosity. If you were a young wrestler and struggling, you could always depend on Wahoo for a ride. He was generous with his talent. He would show up early and work out with young wrestlers. He was quick to recommend new talent. He would help make a new star in the ring.

In addition to his in-ring contributions, Wahoo McDaniel’s behind-the-scenes influence as a booker, trainer, and talent scout has helped shape the course that the wrestling industry has taken in the past three decades. He is a legend. He is a champion. 

This is a multi-media tribute to the legendary career of Wahoo McDaniel.
