That led to many turning into total jerks and massive egos and quite a few times, that behavior ruined them. True, wrestling is packed with egos but a few have it way too an extreme.
It is the story of a plumber's son born from Austin, Texas, who rose to become one of the most famous wrestlers in history, a man who oozed personal magnetism, vanquishing foes with elbows and jiggles, his doughy arm raised in victory more often than not, blood clotting on his scarred forehead, blond, curly hair a sweaty mess. Behind the scenes, he brainstormed, created, encouraged and manipulated, making him one of the most influential minds as well.
