Elk Grove sports fans: Great game last night at Laguna Creek between the Cardinals and Monterey Trail. Read about it HERE
In all the years of watching "All-Star Wrestling" on TV I became aware and expectant that the guy introduced first was going to lose the pro wrestling match. The star was the second guy (or gal) introduced to the TV and, in most instances, the studio audience. If they were "heels" you boo'd them. If there were the good guys (known as "Baby Faces") you cheer'd them.
Kenny Jay was always the "Face" introduced first who took on the "heel" in television matches. It was Jay, though, who was supposed to lose. But, "The Sodbuster" always gave his opponent a really good match. He had all the right moves and holds, but gee, in the end he did something that got him pinned. DARN! we would say, but Kenny Jay made the "Heel" sweat a bit.
He died this week in his home state of Minnesota at the age of 85. His real name was Kenneth John Benkowski. Almost none of the pro wrestlers used their real names.
